Can a woman cover her hands in the state of Ihraam? 

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by TheMufti.com

Q. Does a woman have to give any Damm for covering her hands with her Burga’ in Ihraam?


A. The hands of a woman does not form part of her state of Ihraam. Hence, if a woman covers her hands with a Burqa’ or gloves in the state of Ihraam, there is no violation of the state of Ihraam and accordingly, no penalty applies. (Badaai-us-Sanaai 2/186)
