Sunan Abi Dawood 4200
Narrated Anas bin Malik:

The Messenger of Allah ﷺ fixed forty days to shave the pubes, paring the nails, clipping the moustaches, and plucking the hair under the armpit.

Abu Dawud said: Ja'far b. Sulaiman transmitted it from Abu 'Imran on the authority of Anas. In this version he did not mention the Prophet ﷺ. He said: Forty days were fixed for us. This is a more correct version.
حَدَّثَنَا مُسْلِمُ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ، حَدَّثَنَا صَدَقَةُ الدَّقِيقِيُّ، حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو عِمْرَانَ الْجَوْنِيُّ، عَنْ أَنَسِ بْنِ مَالِكٍ، قَالَ وَقَّتَ لَنَا رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم حَلْقَ الْعَانَةِ وَتَقْلِيمَ الأَظْفَارِ وَقَصَّ الشَّارِبِ وَنَتْفَ الإِبْطِ أَرْبَعِينَ يَوْمًا مَرَّةً ‏.‏ قَالَ أَبُو دَاوُدَ رَوَاهُ جَعْفَرُ بْنُ سُلَيْمَانَ عَنْ أَبِي عِمْرَانَ عَنْ أَنَسٍ لَمْ يَذْكُرِ النَّبِيَّ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ وُقِّتَ لَنَا وَهَذَا أَصَحُّ ‏.‏
