Praise be to Allaah.
It is not permissible for the pilgrim in ihraam, man or
woman, to put on perfume after entering ihraam, because the Prophet
(peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “And do not wear any
garment that has been touched by saffron or safflower.” And ‘Aa’ishah (may
Allaah be pleased with her) said: I put perfume on the Messenger of Allaah
(peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) for his ihraam before he
entered ihraam, and when he exited ihraam before he circumambulated the
Ka’bah. Agreed upon. And the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be
upon him) said concerning a man who died when in ihraam: “Do not put any
perfume on him.” Saheeh – agreed upon.
And Allaah is the Source of strength. May Allaah send
blessings and peace upon our Prophet Muhammad and his family and companions.
