I have been told that you are not allowed to cut your nails on wednesdays. Is this true?

In the name of Allah the most Beneficent and Merciful

There are two hadiths regarding the cutting of nails on Wednesday. One states that it is beneficial whilst the other states that it can be a cause of leprosy (Tahawi). The conclusion by Imam Ibn Abidin in Durr-e-Mukhtar is that it is better not to cut nails on a Wednesday.

Of course Allah knows best

Previous Can u mix ‘naapak’ and ‘pak’ clothes together in the washing machine?
Next I have developed a serious skin condition…If a wash my face five times per day my skin becomes infected, which means I have to go on a course of antibiotics. I basically have to keep parts of my face completely dry. Can I just rub parts of my face with dry hands for wudhu and ghusl?
