Clipping One’s Nails

الحَثُّ عَلى تَقليمِ الأظفارِ

1ـ رسولُ اللهِ‏ِ (صَلَّيَ اللهُ عَلَيهِ وَ آلِهِ): تَقليمُ الأظفارِ يَمنَعُ الداءَ الأعظَمَ، و يُدِرُّ الرِّزقَ.

1– The Prophet (S) said, ‘Clipping one’s nails prevents the worst disease, and yields abundant sustenance.’[al-Kafi, v. 6, p. 490, no. 1]

2ـ الإمامُ الباقرُ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ): إنّما قَصُّ الأظفارِ لأنّها مَقِيلُ الشَّيطانِ، ومِنهُ يَكونُ النِّسيانُ.

2– Imam al-Baqir (a.s.) said, ‘Do cut your nails indeed for verily they are Satan’s resting place, and from him ensues forgetfulness.’[al-Kafi, v. 6, p. 490, no. 6]

3ـ الإمامُ الصّادقُ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ): إنّ أستَرَ وأخفى ما يُسَلَّطُ الشَّيطانُ مِنِ ابنِ آدَمَ أن صارَ أن يَسكُنَ تَحتَ الأظافِيرِ.

3– Imam al-Sadiq (a.s.) said, ‘Verily the most hidden and subtle way that Satan has managed to gain control over man is that he has made himself an abode under his nails.’[al-Kafi, v. 6, p. 490, no. 7]
