Answered by Ustadh Tabraze Azam
Question: Assalam alaykum,
Is it permissible during Ihram to stitch the lower garment in the middle with the intention to cover the private parts?
Generally, tying the lower garment (izar) when in a state of pilgrim sanctity (ihram) would be deemed improper and disliked because it resembles stitched clothing.
