Which Hadith commands pairing the nails and removing unwanted hair within forty days?



Imam Muslim (rahimahullah) has recorded the following narration on the authority of Sayyiduna Anas (radiyallahu ‘anhu):

“A time limit has been set, for trimming the moustache, pairing the nails, plucking the armpit and shaving the pubic region that it should not be left for more than forty nights”

(Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 258)


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
