I heard from some people that it is not permissible for a person to cut his nails during the first ten [days] of Dhul-Hijjah. Is what I have heard correct?
Likewise, regarding the [first] ten days [of Dhul-Hijjah], many people fast from their beginning through to [and not including] the tenth day; so is there any [authentic] proof to confirm that [practice]?
If a Muslim does not fast for two consecutive days during Ramadhaan due to a [Islaamically] valid reason, then how should he make them up?
Some of the scholars say that the Prophet (sal-Allaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) granted permission for the hajj to be performed on behalf of the deceased – without [specifically mentioning] the ‘umrah.
