752 I was told off for cutting my nails at night?
I am assuming this is not Islamic. My mother is quite pious though hence the slight confusion.
Cutting the nails is part of the basic hygiene that Muslims are required to perform. There is no specific time mentioned in Shariah as to when and where this can be done. Rather, they should be done whenever required.

Therefore, if a person refuses to cut the nails at night, it is because of non-Islamic reasons, most likely an ‘old-wives tale.’
