Urine incontinence in ihraam

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I’m going for Hajj this year Insha Allah. I have a problem of urine drops leaking after urinating and this problem can stay for over an hour after passing urine. This problem has also affected me to perform Salaah sometimes since I feel I’m always unclean. Since I have planned for hajj, I am worried how I will stay in ihraam for such a long time with this problem? I want my my hajj to be accepted and want it to be perfect. Please advise what should I do since I am very worried.


A: The ihraam is still valid. You may take tissue paper and apply them to your private area and use some tape to keep it in place.

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