Question:

Can I wear a safety pin to hold the top part of the ihram properly?

 

Answer:

In The Name Of Allah, The Most-Merciful, The Most Kind

 

The minimum penalty (jinayah) found in the state of ihram is covering a part of the body that cannot be covered like the face which requires sadaqah to be given. This is when at least ¼ of that body part is covered. In the case of a safety pin, this will not substantiate a breach in the ihram to even the minimum extent and thus can be done without any penalty.
