Covering the head whilst in the state of Ihraam

Reference: ad-Durrar an-Naadhirah fil-Fataawa al-Mu’aasirah – Page 400

Question: I wore a skullcap whilst I was in the state of ihraam during the last hajj; I was unaware [of it’s prohibition], so am I required to make an expiation? And if it is so – and I do not have enough money for it – then what should I do, may Allaah reward you with good?

Response: In the name of Allaah, and all praise is due to Allaah [alone]…if you were ignorant [of the prohibition] and wore a headscarf or a skullcap on your head, or you had forgotten, then there is nothing (expiation) required of you, and all praise is due to Allaah [alone].

لبس طاقية و هو محرم

المرجع: الدرر الناضرة في الفتاوى المعاصرة – ص400

السؤال: لبست طاقية و أنا محرم في الحج الماضي، و لم أكن أعرف فهل عليّ فدية؟ و إذا كان كذلك و لم يكن معي ثمنها فماذا أفعل جزاكم الله خيراً؟

الجواب: بسم الله و الحمد لله…إذا كنت جاهلاً فوضعت غترة أو طاقية على رأسك أو كنت ناسياً فليس عليك شيء، و الحمد لله.
