The ruling on the men and women

Q: Is it true that it is Haram (prohibited) to throw nails away after cutting them? Is it also true that on the Day of Resurrection these nails will be picked up by edges of the eyelids?


A: All praise be to Allah Alone, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger, and his family and Companions. Islam prescribes cutting the nails, because removing them is one of the characteristics inherent in the Fitrah (natural disposition) and there is no harm in throwing them away. As to what people say, that throwing them away is Haram and that on the Day of Resurrection they will be picked up by edges of the eyelids, this is untrue and we do not know on what basis it is said.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
