Question:


Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah


 


-Regarding salah, when we’re in Saudi for Hajj, the north-east direction for prayer doesn’t apply as long as we’re facing the Ka’ba correct?


-Can we apply fragrance prior to entering the state of ihram? Will our ihram be nullified if the fragrance applied earlier still remains?


-flavoured toothpaste during Ihram is okay or no?


-If I shower or bathe during Ihram, can I brush my beard? I have a compulsive habit to brush it a few times a day at the very least lol.


Also Mufti Saab,


-during Ihram, is it permissible for men to cover their heads in any way? Hats, visor, imama, etc? Asking regarding sunlight and heat and whatnot

Answer:


Assalamualaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakaatuh


 


Yes you face the Ka’bah.


It is permissible for one to apply fragrance before wearing the ihram clothing, with the condition that the one does not apply it on to one’s clothing such that the original state of the fragrance remains. If one applies it to one’s body and after wearing the ihram, only its scent remains, then this is permissible.[1]


If the flavoured toothpaste has a strong fragrance, then this is makruh (disliked). However, if it is a slight scent that does not remain for long, then this is permissible as toothpaste is not the essence of fragrance and neither is it used for perfuming purposes.[2]


It is not permissible to brush your beard as this can result in the hair being plucked out.[3]


It is not permissible to cover your head.[4]


 


Only Allāh Ta’ālā knows best

وَأَجْمَعُوا عَلَى أَنَّهُ يَجُوزُ التَّطَيُّبُ قَبْلَ الْإِحْرَامِ بِمَا لَا يَبْقَى عَيْنُهُ بَعْدَ الْإِحْرَامِ وَإِنْ بَقِيَتْ رَائِحَتُهُ، وَكَذَا التَّطَيُّبُ بِمَا يَبْقَى عَيْنُهُ بَعْدَ الْإِحْرَامِ كَالْمِسْكِ، وَالْغَالِيَةُ عِنْدَنَا لَا يُكْرَهُ فِي الرِّوَايَاتِ الظَّاهِرَةِ، كَذَا فِي فَتَاوَى قَاضِي خَانْ، وَهُوَ الصَّحِيحُ هَكَذَا فِي الْمُحِيطِ وَلَا يَجُوزُ التَّطَيُّبُ فِي الثَّوْبِ بِمَا يَبْقَى عَيْنُهُ عَلَى قَوْلِ الْكُلِّ عَلَى إحْدَى الرِّوَايَتَيْنِ عَنْهُمَا قَالُوا: وَبِهِ نَأْخُذُ كَذَا فِي الْبَحْرِ الرَّائِقِ.


 


[2] al-Fatawa al-Hindiyyah 1/288, al-Maktabah al-Faisal


وَلَيْسَ لَهُ أَنْ يَخْتَضِبَ بِالْحِنَّاءِ لِأَنَّهُ طِيبٌ كَذَا فِي الْجَوْهَرَةِ النَّيِّرَةِ وَلَا بَأْسَ بِأَنْ يَكْتَحِلَ بِكُحْلٍ لَيْسَ فِيهِ طِيبٌ


 


Radd al-Muhtar 1/547, Darul Fikr Beirut


وَلَوْ جَعَلَهُ فِي طَعَامٍ قَدْ طُبِخَ فَلَا شَيْءَ فِيهِ وَإِنْ لَمْ يُطْبَخْ وَكَانَ مَغْلُوبًا كُرِهَ أَكْلُهُ كَشَمِّ طِيبٍ وَتُفَّاحٍ


 


[3] al-Fatawa al-Hindiyyah 1/307, al-Maktabah al-Faisal


وَإِنْ نَتَفَ مِنْ رَأْسِهِ أَوْ مِنْ أَنْفِهِ أَوْ لِحْيَتِهِ شَعَرَاتٍ فَفِي كُلِّ شَعْرَةٍ كَفٌّ مِنْ الطَّعَامِ كَذَا فِي فَتَاوَى قَاضِي خَانْ


 


[4] al-Fatawa al-Hindiyyah 1/287, al-Maktabah al-Faisal


وَلَايَلْبَسُ مَخِيطًا قَمِيصًا أَوْ قَبَاءً أَوْ سَرَاوِيلَ أَوْ عِمَامَةً أَوْ قَلَنْسُوَةً


 


al-Fatawa al-Hindiyyah 1/306, al-Maktabah al-Faisal


وَلَوْ غَطَّى الْمُحْرِمُ رَأْسَهُ أَوْ وَجْهَهُ يَوْمًا فَعَلَيْهِ دَمٌ، وَإِنْ كَانَ أَقَلَّ مِنْ ذَلِكَ فَعَلَيْهِ صَدَقَةٌ كَذَا فِي الْخُلَاصَةِ وَكَذَا إذَا غَطَّاهُ لَيْلَةً كَامِلَةً سَوَاءٌ غَطَّاهُ عَامِدًا أَوْ نَاسِيًا أَوْ نَائِمًا كَذَا فِي السِّرَاجِ الْوَهَّاجِ
