Covering the face in ihraam

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I performed umrah some years back with my face covered such that veil was touching my face. I remained in ihraam for less than a day. Am I supposed to give sadqa or damm? Please explain what’s the difference between these two?


A: If it was touching the face for less than 12 hours then you have to give sadaqah.

Dum generally refers to slaughtering an animal and sadaqah is for an offence that is of a lesser status.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
