Question
Asalamwalakum, I know that growing nails is haraam and one should cut ones nails off right away but I also heard that when the nail is like forty days long then you should. What is the limit of letting them grow? Thank you.

Answer
Wallekum As Salaam!

Can you refer any ayat in the Koran that says growing nails is haraam. In case you find in the
Koran then you can stop growing immediately.

The Almighty Allah never indulges in something like this in the Koran since it is all man made.

Read Koran and observe only those that is mentioned as haraam and nobody else has the authority
to make it haraam that is not there in the Koran.

Am sure as an educated woman and since it is a fashion to grown nails, you have to ensure that
they are clean and maintain hygiene at all times lest you catch infections.

May the Almighty Allah have mercy on us to forgive our sins and guide us all to the true path
of Islam as per the Koran for rest of our life
