Wearing underwear in ihraam

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I went for hajj this year. I had to wear underpants under my ihram due to a medical reason which was approved by my doctor. During hajj I was told I have to pay a dum because I am not allowed to wear any other clothing apart from ihram, regardless of a medical condition. I wanted to know if this is true.

Bismillaah

A: If it was due to medical reasons then you have the choice of slaughtering a dam (a goat or sheep) in the precinct of the haram or giving the amount of sadaqatul fitr to the poor.

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