Wearing the cap purdah in ihraam

Q: If wearing the cap purdah in ihraam is difficult, should a woman wear the normal purdah or not wear any? Some are of the opinion of wearing the normal purdah and removing before 12 hours, is this also a correct view?


A: My suggestion is that this is a practice that is in vogue and was always there. Women had lived and managed all these years in the past and were practising it. Those who are more experienced should be consulted.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
