Changing Iḥrām Garments During the Sacred State

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Mathabah.org
Answered by Shaykh Yūsuf Badāt


Is it permitted to change one’s Iḥrām into another?


In the Name of Allāh, Most Kind, Most Merciful

Jazāk Allāh Khayr/ Thank you for your question. While in the state of iḥrām, there is no objection in changing into another iḥrām, regardless of reason such as the garments being soiled or discomfort. (See: Fatḥ Al-Bārī)

It must be noted that all rules of iḥrām must be adhered to when switching iḥrāms.

“The Prophet (peace and blessings upon him) changed his iḥrām sheets at Tanʿīm while he was in the sacred state of pilgrimage.” (Abū Dāwūd, Naṣb Al-Rāyah)

“[The jurist] Ibrāhīm Al-Nakhaʿī said, “There is no objection in changing one’s iḥrām garments into another.” (ʿUmdat Al-Qārī)

And Allāh Knows Best
