She Wore The Burqa' (Face Veil) In Ihraam Not Knowing It Is Haraam: Should Women Kiss The Black Stone?

Islamic Rulings - Living Shariah Verdicts

Islamic Questions & Answers


Is it permissible for a woman to wear the burqa' (a kind of face veil) when in ihraam? My family wore it and when they came back from Hajj they were told that their Hajj was not acceptable, because they wore the burqa'.

Praise be to Allaah.

Wearing the burqa' is not permissible for a woman in ihraam, because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: "Women should not wear niqaab or gloves." Narrated by al-Bukhaari. But there is no sin on a woman who wears the burqa' in ihraam because she is unaware of the prohibition, and her Hajj is valid.

And Allaah is the Source of strength. May Allaah send blessings and peace upon our Prophet Muhammad and his family and companions. End quote.

Should women kiss the Black Stone?

Is it correct for women when kissing the Black Stone to uncover their faces even though there are men around them?.

Praise be to Allaah.

Kissing the Black Stone during tawaaf is one of the established Sunnahs of tawaaf, if it is possible to do it without pushing and shoving or annoying anyone else by your action, following the example of the Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him). If it is not possible to do it except by pushing and shoving and annoying others, then one should not do it, and it is sufficient to point to it with one's hand, especially for women, because the woman is ‘awrah and because pushing and shoving is not allowed for men, so it is even less so for women. If it is possible for a woman for kiss the Black Stone without pushing and shoving, it is not permissible to her to uncover her face whilst doing so, because of the presence of men who are not mahrams for her in that place.
And Allah is the source of strength. May Allaah send blessings and peace upon our Prophet Muhammad and his family and companions. End quote.
