Can tissues and cream touch the face during Umrah in the state of Ihraam?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftisays.com
Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahamatullahi Wa Barakatuhu,

Dear Respected Ulama,

I am intending to go Umrah insha’Allah during the month of Ramadhan. what I would like to know is in the state of Ihraam, no item can touch our face, This goes for brothers and sisters. But is it just material which cannot touch your face or things like tissues too? And can one put cream on his/her face?

Wassalamu Alaykum.


Al-jawab billahi at-taufeeq (the answer with Allah’s guidance)

In Ihraam men must keep their faces and heads open. i.e. they should not cover the face in the normal ways that faces are covered. This also applies to only the face of women not their heads as this must be covered. However it is important that women conceal or block their faces in such a way that the cloth or material does not touch her face. That is generally practiced by drawing the veil from the petruding front part of a sun cap.

1) Materials & Tissues may not be used for covering the face.

2) One may use cream as long as it does not contain any fragrance/scent.

And Only Allah Ta’ala Knows Best.
