One of the days that correspond in the Jewish and Islamic calendars is the 9th of Av (Tisha B'Av תשעה באב) with the 9th of Dhu'al-Hijjah (Yaum Arafat يوم عرفة)

A customs that is shared between Judaism and Islam is the custom not to cut the hair or nails in the nine days previous to that day.

The days leading up to Tisha B'Av are known as "The Week of Tisha B'Av", or "The Nine Days" by Ashkenazi Jews. Jews customarily refrain from eating meat during this period, and from pleasurable activities such as bathing or swimming. In the three weeks before Tisha B'Av, Jews do not cut their hair or shave or listen to music. Weddings are not held during this period, although ritual engagement is still allowed.

Concerning the udhhiya (Sacrificial Slaughter), one who intends to make the sacrificial slaughter it is sunnah not to shave his hair or clip his nails in the nine days from when the Dhul Hajj moon is sighted, until the time of slaughter. (Sahih Muslim)
