Q. How should a person be buried if he passes away in the state of Ihraam whilst performing Umrah or Hajj? Should he be buried as is, in the state of Ihraam without covering the head etc.?
A. The burial procedures of a person that passes away in the state of Ihraam is the same as a person that passes away out of the state of Ihraam. This is because the conditions of Ihraam remains until a person’s death and not after a person’s death. In such a case, a person will be buried in accordance to the normal burial rites and not in the condition of Ihraam. (Al-Mabsoot 2/53)
