        2) The mustaḥabb acts of iḥrām

        Issue 157: It is recommended that body is pure before wearing iḥrām, the extra hair of body is removed and nails are cut off. Brushing teeth is also recommended before wearing iḥrām.

        It is also mustaḥabb to take ghusl before entering in the state of iḥrām at mīqāt. It is said that on cautionary basis this ghusl should not be neglected. Furthermore, it is recommended that one wears iḥrām after an obligatory noon-prayer or after any obligatory prayer or after offering a two-rak'ah prayer. It is mentioned in some hadiths that one offers six rak'ahs of recommended prayers as such prayers have great significance/reward.

        For a person who wants to perform hajj, it is recommended that he does not cut his hair in the month of Dhul-Qa‘dah.
