Wanted to double-check, is it acceptable to wear small headphones/earplugs in ihram?

Answer:


بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Assalamualaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakaatuh

Yes, one may wear headphones and earplugs while in the state of ihram.

What is prohibited in Ihraam is covering the head (for a man only) or face using something that is usually used for the purpose of covering. Headphones and earplugs do not fall under this category of items.[1]

Only Allah Ta’ala knows best.

وَلَوْ حَمَلَ الْمُحْرِمُ شَيْئًا عَلَى رَأْسِهِ فَإِنْ كَانَ مِنْ جِنْسِ مَا لَا يُغَطَّى بِهِ الرَّأْسُ كَالطَّسْتِ وَالْأَجَانَةِ وَعَدْلِ بَرٍّ وَنَحْوِهَا فَلَا شَيْءَ عَلَيْهِ، وَإِنْ كَانَ مِنْ جِنْسِ مَا يُغَطَّى بِهِ الرَّأْسُ مِنْ الثِّيَابِ فَعَلَيْهِ الْجَزَاءُ كَذَا فِي الْمُحِيطِ.
