During the month of Hajj, is it permissible for me and for my young daughters to comb our hair when I am staying at home and not performing Hajj?
Actually, some people claim that combing hair during the month of Hajj is impermissible. Please, tell me whether it is permissible for me to comb my hair.
Whoever intends to offer an Ud-hiyah (sacrificial animal offered by non-pilgrims) should not in the least clip his hair, nails or skin hair once the month of Dhul-Hijjah has commenced till he has offered the Ud-hiyah. In this regard, the Prophet (peace be upon him) is reported to have said,
When any one of you intending to sacrifice the animal enters in the month (of Dhul-Hijjah) he should not get his hair or skin hair touched (cut).
A reference to nails is found in another narration. However, this by no means applies to his family. As for combing hair without cutting it, it is unobjectionable.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
