Muhmmrnad b. Ja’far al-Bursi narrated from Muhammad b.Yahya al-Armani from Muhammad b Sinan al-Zahiri from al-Mufaddal b. ‘Umar al-Ju’fi from Abu Zabyan from Jabir b. Yazid al-Ju’fi from Abu Ja’far Muhammad al-Baqir from his father from his grandfather, who said Amir al-Mu’minin, peace be upon him, said: “Clip your nails on Friday before the prayer, to ward off the greatest illness.”

From him, peace be upon him, that he said: “Clipping nails on Friday keeps away every illness, and clipping on Thursday makes sustenance flow abundantly.”
