Answered by: Shaykh Ahmed bin Mohamed Umarji
If you sleep on your side and the pillowcase touches the side of your face during ihram, is that allowed?
In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
Resting one’s cheek on the pillow in the state of Ihram is permissible.
It is prohibited in the state of Ihram to cover the head [for men] or the face [for both men and women]1. Resting one’s face on a pillow will not fall under this prohibition.
Only Allah knows best
