Could I clip my nails whilst I am in menses


I want to know if I can clip my nails whilst I am in menses. I heard I could not and what if they are long and ugly?


As-salāmu ‘Alaykum Wa-rahmatullāhi Wa-barakātuh.
In the Name of Allāh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

It is Makrooh (Abominable) for a woman in the state of Haidh (Menstruation) to clip her nails.[1] However if there is a need for you to clip your nails (very long), it will be permissible to clip them.[2]

And Allah Ta‘ala knows best
