If you visit Makkah for multiple days and want to make an Umrah each day, do you have to remove your unwanted hair each time?


If you visit Makkah for multiple days and want to make an Umrah each day, do you have to remove your unwanted hair each time before you put on your ihraam or will it suffice if you only remove them the first time you put on your ihraam. Jazakullahu Khairun


Assalāmu `alaikum Warahmatullāhi Wabrakatuh,

It is mustahab (desirable) to remove unwanted hair before donning theihrām.If a person is performing multiple `umrāhshe will not have to remove unwanted hair before every ihrām.To make more tawāfis more virtuous than multiple `umrahs.


المسالك في المناسك (1/323)

إذاأراد الرجل لاإحرام يستحب له أن يقص شاربه، ويقلم أظفاره، ويحلق عانته، كذا التوارث؛ ولأنه أنظف للبدن، فكان أحسن كما في حالة الصلاة

حاشية ابن عابدين - (2 / 502)

ونظيره ما أجاب به العلامة القاضي إبراهيم بن ظهيرة المكي حيث سئل هل الأفضل الطواف أو العمرة من أن الأرجح تفضيل الطواف على العمرة إذا شغل به مقدار زمن العمرة إلا إذا قيل إنها لا تقع إلا فرض كفاية فلا يكون الحكم كذلك
