Upper body exposed in Ihraam

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Asalam alikom.
I have doing Umrah and I completed the tawaf and after I prayed 2 rakats in Ibrahim station, but I saw Black stone was not busy, so I tried to kiss it, and it got busy there suddenly. I kissed it but my upper ihram disappeared from nearby the black stone and then I got upper ihram from shop out in Mecca and I completed umrah in that. So is there any damm or what should i do now? Is my umrah completed by rules of islam?
Jazak Ullah


Wa’alaykum as Salam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu,

Since it was your upper body that was exposed, and your ‘Awrah (area between navel and knees) was still concealed, your ‘Umrah is valid and there is no penalty upon you.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best
