The answers on Hawramani.com are based on the research of Ikram Hawramani in the Quran, hadith, scholarly works and respected fatwa sources. You can
view Ikram Hawramani's credentials
on the about page. Please note that we do not issue fatwas, we only compile the opinions
of respected scholars (even when a fatwa is not explicitly cited) to make their opinions accessible to English-speaking Muslims. If an answer does not
cite fatwas, please feel free to leave a comment asking for a fatwa citation and we will update the answer as soon as possible to include fatwas.
In Islam how long can my nails be?
It is part of the Sunna (the Prophet’s tradition ) to have short nails, so the scholarly community considers having long nails to be makrūh (“disliked”). This means that having long nails is not forbidden, but it is not recommended.
And God knows best.
