Question

What is the ruling of wearing a mask in ihram?

 

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

 

Answer:

According to the Ḥanafi madhhab, wearing a face mask is not permitted and will necessitate an obligatory ṣaḍaqah (2.32kg of wheat or its value in cash) if worn for a short while. If it is worn for a complete day or night, paying the damm will be wājib.[1]
