Question:


Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah


What’s minimum hair length that you can do qasr on, instead of halaq?


 


   بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم


 


                               


                                              In the name of ALLAH the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.


Answer:


Assalamualaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakaatuh


If one wants to shorten their hair (qasr) instead of shaving it (halaq) to exit the state of ihraam, the hair must be so long that more than an inch of hair (or hair longer than one phalanx) cut be cut off from at least a quarter of the head.[1]


 


Only Allah Ta’ala knows best.

[1] وَالتَّقْصِيرُ أَنْ يَأْخُذَ الرَّجُلُ وَالْمَرْأَةُ مِنْ رُءُوسِ الشَّعْرِ رُبْعَ الرَّأْسِ مِقْدَارَ الْأُنْمُلَةِ، كَذَا فِي التَّبْيِينِ. وَفِي الْبَدَائِعِ قَالُوا يَجِبُ أَنْ يَزِيدَ فِي التَّقْصِيرِ عَلَى قَدْرِ الْأُنْمُلَةِ إذْ أَطْرَافُ الشَّعْرِ غَيْرُ مُتَسَاوِيَةٍ عَادَةً فَوَجَبَ أَنْ يَزِيدَ عَلَى قَدْرِ الْأُنْمُلَةِ حَتَّى يَسْتَوْفِيَ قَدْرَ الْأُنْمُلَةِ فِي التَّقْصِيرِ يَقِينًا، كَذَا فِي غَايَةِ السُّرُوجِيِّ شَرْحِ الْهِدَايَةِ.
