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:
- Cutting [any] hair;
- Cutting/trimming the nails;
- Applying perfume;
- Wearing [any] stitched garment;
- Covering the head;
- Hunting game;
- Sexual intercourse;
- Entering into the contract of nikaah;
- 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.
