Cutting Nails at Night

Q: Is it allowed to cut the nails after maghrib?

A: It is permissible to cut the nails at night. It is recorded that the Ruler Haroon Rashid asked Imam Abu Yusuf (Rahmatullaahi Alayh) regarding cutting nails at night. The Imam answered that it is permissible and advisable because Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said that “good work should not be delayed”. (Al Hindiyyah)
