The World Federation One Stop Fiqh

Ritual 259

It is forbidden for a pilgrim, in a state of ihram, to shave or pluck, even a single hair of his, or another one’s, hair, whether in ihram or not. There are three exceptions to this rule:

1.if there are plenty of lice on the body of the pilgrim and he is troubled by them;

2. if it becomes necessary to remove them, due to, for example, the length or quantity of hair that may cause headache, or for another reason;

3. if the hair drop off by themselves in the course of wudhu or ghusl.
