I want to know is it wajib to cut nails and pubic and armpit hairs ? Please provide evidence too.

Thank you

Yes, it is wajib to trim your fingernails and remove your pubic and armpit hairs at least once every forty days, and it is Sunnah/Mustahhab to do so once a week on Yawm al-Jumu'ah before the Khutbat ul-Jumu'ah.

عَنْ أَنَسِ بْنِ مَالِكٍ، قَالَ وَقَّتَ لَنَا رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم حَلْقَ الْعَانَةِ وَتَقْلِيمَ الأَظْفَارِ وَقَصَّ الشَّارِبِ وَنَتْفَ الإِبْطِ أَرْبَعِينَ يَوْمًا مَرَّةً

The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) fixed forty days to shave the pubes, paring the nails, clipping the moustaches, and plucking the hair under the armpit.

Ali Bin Ibrahim, form his father, from Al Nowfaly, 


(It has been narrated) from Abu Abd Allah(asws) having said: ‘Rasool-Allah (saws) said: ‘The one who was a believer in Allah (عزّ وجلّ) and the Last Day, so he should not leave his pubic hair for more than forty (40) days, nor is it Permissible for a woman who believes in Allah (عزّ وجلّ) and the Last Day that she should leave that from her for more than twenty (20) days’.

 

Al Kafi – V 6 – The Book of Outfits and the Beautification and the Magnanimity Ch 45 H 11

 

 

Ahmad Bin Muhammad, from Al Qasim Bin Yahya, from his grandfather Al Hassan Bin Rashid, from Muhammad Bin Muslim, from Abu Abd Allah (asws) says that ‘Amir Al-Momineen Ali (asws) said: 

‘I would love it for the Believer if he were to wax (to remove unwanted hair) during every fifteen days’

 

Al Kafi – V 6 – The Book of Outfits and the Beautification and the Magnanimity Ch 45 H 8

 


Relevant Narrations,

 


One of our companions, from Ibn Jamhour, from Muhammad Bin Al Qasim, from Abdullah Bin Abu Yafour who said, 

 

‘We were in Al-Medina, so Zurara disputed with me regarding plucking of the armpit and shaving it’. So I said, ‘Shaving it is better’, and Zurara said, plucking it is better’. So I sought permission for us to see Abu Abd Allah (asws), so he (asws) permitted us, and he (asws) was in the bathhouse having waxed, and he (asws) had waxed his armpits. So I said to Zurara, ‘Does it suffice you?’ He said, ‘No, maybe this deed is for him, and it may not be allowed for me that I should do it’.

So he (asws) said: ‘In what (discussion) are you two?’ So I said, ‘Zurara is disputing with me regarding plucking the armpit and shaving it. I said shaving is better, and Zurara said plucking is better’. So he (asws) said: ‘You have hit the Sunnah and Zurara has erred. Shaving it is better than plucking it, and waxing it is better than shaving it’.

Then he (asws) said to us: ‘Get the waxing done’. So we said, ‘We did that three days ago’. So he (asws) said: ‘Repeat it, for the waxing is cleanliness’.


Al Kafi – V 4 – The Book of Hajj Ch 77 H 6

 


Muhammad Bin Yahya, from Ahmad Bin Muhammad Bin Isa, from Ali Bin Al Hakam, from Ali Bin Abu Hamza who said, 

 

‘I entered the bathhouse along with Abu Baseer, so we looked at Abu Abd Allah (asws) had waxed, and he (asws) had waxed his underarms with Al-Noura. So I informed Abu Baseer, so he said, ‘Guide me to him to ask him about it’. So I said, ‘I have seen him'. So he said, ‘You have seen him, and I cannot see him’, (as he was blind). Guide me to him’.

So I guided him to him, so he said to him, ‘May I be sacrificed for you! My 
guide informed me that you have waxed, and waxed your underarms with Al-Noura’. 

He (asws) said: ‘Yes, O Abu Muhammad! Plucking the underarms weakens the vision. 

Wax, O Abu Muhammad’. So he said, ‘I have waxed a few days beforehand’. So he (asws) said: ‘Wax, for it is cleaner’
