Donning Ihram whilst in the state of impurity

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Alhamdulillah I went for umrah, the problem is that I had Ihtilaam in the airplane, so when we were passing the miyqaat, I was unable to make the two rakaats for putting on my Ihraam. I did recite labaik.

Is my umrah valid?


In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

If you put on the two cloths of Ihraam and recited the Labbaik, then your Ihraam is valid. The two Rakaats when donning the Ihraam is Sunnah[1]. The two rakaats Salaah is not necessary for the validity of your Ihraam.

If you did not wear the Ihraam cloths, and you wore your normal clothing when passing the meeqaat after having made niyyah of Ihraam and reciting the Labbaik then, you have violated the laws of Ihraam. If so, you may enquire from us regarding that.

And Allaah Ta’aala Knows Best
