Assalāmua'laikum All,

Using my husbands account.

InshāAllāh we are planning on going Hajj this year (Du'as requested)

I wanted to get some advise on some woman stuff.

1. I wear the Niqaab so I'm also looking to cover my face in Ihrām too (the permissible way).

The only problem is, the one that usually everyone wears, the baseball cap with the veil hanging down, people have told me that it's very difficult for one to see and gets very stuffy etc. I tried it out my self and it is some what difficult.
Apparently there are other alternatives. Mufti Mangera said that you can wear a big summer type hat where the top part of the hat slants down and covers your face, Mufti Sahib then mentioned you can wear big shades and a fan to cover the rest. Has anyone actually tried this, if so, then how did they find it.

I just wanted to get some advise/help on what other sisters have used when they have been to Hajj or Umrah.

2. Can anyone recommend any comfortable footwear for woman that I can purchase as apparently there is a lot of walking to do!

3. Any extra advise on what I should be ready for, please do share.

JazākAllāh in advanced to everyone.

Wa'alaykumus salaam warahmatulla sister (wife of anataalib)
Allah ta'ala accept your intention and grant a maqbool and mabroor hajj and make every step easy for you, aameen

I highly recommend this book for women's masaail during hajj as well as the method:

A Woman's Guide To Hajj & Umrah
By Mufti Muhammad Faruq
available in most bookshops and at kitbun.com - kitaabun.com/shopping3/womans-guide-hajj-umrah-mufti-muha...

As for the cap worn in ihraam, it depends on how its made. Try on different ones in shops and see which is most comfortable then keep trying it at home so you get used to it. A good seamstress would be able to fix it with a slit for the eyes so you can see.

Trying to cover the face with a fan or anything else which is held in front of the face would be very very difficult with crowds around during tawaaf and the stoning

try sunshade cap, it comes with head open with just strap and sunshade.
Anyhow, the cloth(veil) will touch the face. Hence you can give sadqa for that.
I learnt this from my Hajj guide,

Alhumdulillah, wearing the veil is very good and a lesson for those who don't.

But when there is a rule which allows you not to wear the veil, then why go through so much trouble?

I can understand exceptions in some cases, but only in extreme situations. If that's the case, fair enough. Otherwise we should wear the Ihram as indicated.

If the Prophet (saw) has said: “The Ihrām of a female is in her face and the Ihrām of a man is in his head.”

Then, as above - Do as the Prophet (saw) taught. Overwise both men and women will find a way to go against the Hadith. (maybe the word "against" is too harsh - so please don't pass a fatwa on me)

One might argue that we use umbrella's but that is different. Khair, if some women wish to add to their difficulties, that is their choice

A bit over the top :)

And then cover the top with a cloth that is normally used as the veil.

Quote:
Sayyida A’isha (Allah be pleased with her) narrates that, the (caravan of) riders would pass by us whilst we were in the state of Ihram in the company of the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him & give him peace). When they got close to us, we would draw our outer cloak from our heads over our faces (m, without letting it touch the face) and when they passed by, we would uncover our faces.” (Sunan Abu Dawud, no. 1826)


If the ummahaatul mu'mineen drew their cloaks over their faces in their day how much more need is there today with hujjaaj traveling in groups from one place to another and during tawaaf with all the fitnah which you hear about even in the holy places?

Quote:
However, if it becomes very difficult, in that it becomes virtually impossible to wear the niqab (even with a cap, etc), and you fear harm onto yourself, then in such a case you will be excused in leaving the face exposed, but try to keep the face away from non-Mahram men whenever reasonably possible.


Virtually impossible in today's crowds

The issue isn’t merely about Fiqh. A woman who covers her face and then suddenly uncovers will be uncomfortable, nervous and will be unable to fully concentrate on rituals and acts of worship associated with Hajj. It will play havoc with her mental state of mind so it is strongly advised for a sister not to “uncover” when she usually covers her face. Hajj is already a stressful situation and added stress, worry and concerns should be avoided.

JazākAllāh Ummi Taalib and Amīn to your Duas.

Also JazākAllāh for all the extra resources especially the Masaail links!

It does and it should. Sisters who cover are visibly stressed out when they have to lift their veil at Airports and Security checkpoints so having the face uncovered for extended periods of time will be decidedly stressful and she may be at her wit’s end, a very bad idea for any Sister to uncover her face during Hajj if she usually covers her face.
