Forbidden Acts in The State of Ihram During Hajj

Every worship in every religion has its own rituals and ceremonies. Islam is a religion with different worships as five pillars of Islam. Hajj is the fifth pillar of Islam and it has many vital rites to perform it. The most important rite is wearing Ihram, the 2 unstitched white sheets. Without wearing Ihram, Hajj or Umrah will not be accepted. When men wear Ihram, they made a pure intention and entered into one of the two blessed rituals, Hajj or Umrah, attended by the exclusion of regular dress and putting on special clothing and then narrating the Talbiyah. There are certain limitations that apply to the one who goes into Ihram state.

No Sexual Relations are Allowed

Similarly, sexual relations are strictly not allowed during Hajj and Umrah and all other matters leading to it such as touching, kissing, eye contact with non-Mahram etc. If someone made physical relation then he or she must sacrifice a camel or keep fasting ten days and he must make up another year. But, it’s necessary to complete Hajj. Hazrat Ali (R.A), Hazrat Umar (R.A), and Hazrat Abu Hurairah (R.A) issued a verdict when one couple has done sexual intercourse in the Ihram state,

“They both continue to complete (the remaining Hajj rituals) for their own face (i.e. to save them humiliation) up until they accomplish their Hajj. Then they must complete Hajj (yet again) in the future and they must sacrifice an animal.”

• Don’t Dispute, Argue, and Fight with Pilgrims

Allah says in the Holy Quran,

“…Whosoever proposes to perform Hajj (in that by wearing Ihram), then he should not have sexual relations (with his spouse), nor commit depravity, nor dispute unfairly throughout the Hajj…” (Holy Quran” 2:197)

Similarly, the Holy Prophet (PBUH) said that (Narrated by Hazrat Abu Hurairah (R.A))

“He who completes Hajj, obligating no offensiveness, nor cheekiness, nor backbiting, will return home free of iniquities as the day his mother bore him.” (Al-Bukhari and Muslim)

• Don’t Wear any Form-Fitting Garments

You’re going to perform sacred reverence in the House of Allah, therefore, wear the clothes which hide your complete body parts. Allah says that,

“So, whoever between you is ill or he has a sickness on his head (i.e. his hair), then he must make a recompense of fasting or giving Zakat (Sadqa) or slaughtering (an animal).” (Holy Quran: 2:196)

• Contract Marriage is not Allowed

About contract marriage during Hajj, the Last Messenger of Allah, Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) said that,

“A person in the condition of Ihram must not contract marriage, nor help others contract marriage, nor get affianced for a wedding.” (Sahih Muslim)

So, avoid these points while performing Hajj in the Holy City Makkah, Saudi Arabia. May Allah accept our Hajj.
