Question:

 

If due to weakness in the knee, someone wears a knee brace while in the state of Ihram, will that make dam laazim?

 

 

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

 

Answer:

 

During the state of ihram, a muhrim is not allowed to wear sewn or patched clothing.

 

However, in regards to your query, due to necessity, having to wear a brace will be deemed permissible as it is wrapping the knee and we take this ruling from Mufti Rasheed Ahmed Ludhyanwi who mentioned that wearing a langoot would be permissible for hernia patients. (1)

 

He ruled that there is no compensation for this and thus if the knee brace is worn due to extreme need, compensation won’t be required.
