Q: I’m male and suffer from male pattern baldness and as a result I’m wearing a wig to only cover the top part of my head, the rest of my hair is my own.
1. Am I allowed to wear the wig while I perform Umrah?
2. If not, and I continue wearing it do I have to pay dumm?
3. How much is the dumm and what do I need to do?
3. If the wig was on your head for a duration of 12 hours or more then you will have to give a dum i.e. slaughter a sheep or goat.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
