No wonder, Islam deals with all aspects of life, major and minor. Muslims are required to adhere to the Islamic way of life in all their affairs.
Sheikh M. S. Al-Munajjid, a prominent Saudi Islamic lecturer and author states that: “There is no basis for saying that one must say bismillah (in the Name of Allah) three times over nails or hair before throwing them away, otherwise the Shaytan (Satan) will use them. It is also not correct to say that they must be buried; a Hadith narrated concerning that is very weak.
It is permissible to throw them in the garbage or down the drain, or to bury them. If a person fears that they may fall into the hands of those who practice sihr (sorcery), then he should dispose of them in a place where they will not be able to get hold of them.”
