Things to beware of whilst in state of ihraam

Reference: Majmoo’ Fataawa Samahatu ash-Shaykh Ibn Baaz – Volume 6, Page 97, Fatwa No.49

Question: What are the things that the Muhrim needs to be aware of?

Response: The Muhrim (one in state of ihraam) must be aware of nine things which the scholars have mentioned and these are:

  1. Cutting [any] hair;
  2. Cutting/trimming the nails;
  3. Applying perfume;
  4. Wearing [any] stitched garment;
  5. Covering the head;
  6. Hunting game;
  7. Sexual intercourse;
  8. Entering into the contract of nikaah;
  9. Touching one’s wife sexually.

All of these are impermissible for the Muhrim until he comes out of the first state of ihraam [during Hajj], whereby all of these are permissible except sexual intercourse. So, when he comes out of the second state of ihraam, sexual intercourse becomes permissible.
