I read that clipping the nails is one of
the violations of Ihraam. If a pilgrim
finds that a nail or part of a nail needs
to be removed because it hurts or
disturbs him, and he removes it, does
he incur any sort of compensation?
What about removing dead skin which
grows besides the fingernails or toenails
as well as the dead skin on the heels?
Does this require compensation? Please


All perfect praise be to Allah, the Lord
of the Worlds. I testify that there is
none worthy of worship except Allah,
and that Muhammad is His Slave
and Messenger.
Clipping the nails is one of the
violations of Ihram, but if a pilgrim's
nail is broken and hurts him, there will
be no harm to clip the hurting part only
without any sort of compensation
required. Ibn ‘Abbas said, “A
pilgrim in the state of Ihram is allowed
to smell basil, enter the shower, pull
out his molars, and squeeze out pus. If
his nail is broken, he can remove harm
from himself.” He added, “Remove harm
from yourselves, for Allah The Almighty
does not benefit from your harm.” [Ad-
Daraqutni and Al-Bayhaqi]

Scholars have different opinions
concerning the ruling of removing some
of a person’s skin during the state of
Ihram. Some scholars, like Shaykh Ibn
Baz forbade it, and others, like
Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen permitted
it. In Fatawa Shaykh Ibn Baz it
was written,
A Muslim in the state of Ihram or one
[not in Hajj] who intends to slaughter a
sacrificial animal for 'Eed Al-Adh’ha
should not remove anything from his
skin or hair. A pilgrim in the state of
Ihram and the Muslim who intends to
slaughter a sacrificial animal for ‘Eed
Al-Adh’ha should not remove any thing
from their skin, whether from the face
or the leg or the hand or anywhere else
until the pilgrim makes the first
dissolution of Ihram and the latter
slaughters his sacrificial animal.

Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen said, “A
pilgrim in the state of Ihram is not
forbidden to remove part of his skin.”
We do not know any authentic evidence
on the prohibition, and the
preponderant opinion is that it is
permissible. However, it is more
cautious not to remove any skin to be
away from the divergence in opinions.
Allah Knows best.
