Answered by: Maulana Imran Mughal
Is there any ikhtilaf (difference of opinion) on washing the palm of your hand with scented soap necessitating a dam?
بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم
In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
If a person has used scented soap on his entire hand or more than a quarter of it, this will necessitate a “dam.”
The reason for this is because a person’s condition in Hajj should be that of complete humility and submission out of love towards Allah, and by applying or using scented products this quality is not found.
Only Allah knows best
