A Ma’dhur Performing Umrah

Question

I am madhoor from urine drops.

Insha Allah i will be performing umrah. I usually put a tissue in my underwear to prevent my clothes getting soiled and change it before salaah. During umrah I can’t wear underpants so what can be done or what is the ruling because my urine drops will soil the ihram? 

Answer

One is not allowed to wear sewn clothing in the state of Ihraam. However, if it isn’t worn in the manner it was made for, it will be allowed. 

For example, if one were to wrap the Kurta around one’s shoulders as a shawl or wrap ones trousers around ones waist, it will be allowed. So, to protect your Ihraam from urine drops, you can tie a piece of clothing around your private parts that isn’t meant to be worn there (like a shirt, pant, scarf etc.) like a diaper. Or you can tie underwear as well, as this is not the way it is worn.
