Burning hairs and nails

Q. Is it permissible to burn hairs and nails removed from the body? May these be flushed down the drain?

A. Hair from the head and nails should neither be burnt nor flushed down the drain, nor should they be thrown away. The Shariah orders that hairs and nails be buried. Flushing down the drain like waste matter, can lead to sickness. People who practise sihr, may use the hairs for evil purposes if they find it. Islam orders burial for one’s own safety and also to honour these items which are part of the human body.
