Question: Does cutting the hair and trimming the nails during the day in Ramadhaan break the fast?

Response: Cutting the hair and trimming the nails and plucking the hair from the armpits and trimming the pubic hairs, all do not break the fast.

And with Allaah lies all the success, and may Allaah send prayers and salutations upon our Prophet Muhammad (sal-Allaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) and his family and his companions.
