Can I Wear Lungi in Ihraam?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by DarulIftaBirmingham

Can I wear lungi in ihraam

In the name of All, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful


It should be clarified from the offset that many things which are permitted outside of Ihrām are not permitted inside of the state of Ihrām. [Radd ul-Muhtār: vol. 3, pg. 485] [1]

Wearing a longi is one of those things. The Ihrām has been described as two pieces of cloth for men. The first which is an Izār (lower garment) and the second is a Ridā (upper garment/shawl). The Ihrām should ideally be free of stitches. [Radd ul-Muhtār: vol. 3, pg. 487] [2]

Only Allāh Ta’ālā knows best.
