There is a woman in the state of Ihraam
who is weak-sighted and cannot cover
her face because she does not see very
well. She also does not want to uncover
her face. Can she wear a Niqaab?


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.

The Messenger of Allah said, “A
woman in the state of Ihraam does not
wear Niqab or gloves.” [Al-Bukhari] But
it is permissible for her to let her head-
covering garment drape from her head
down over her face when non-Mahram
(i.e., marriageable) men pass by her.
If she covers her face with a Niqab for
an excuse such as weak-sightedness,
then she is liable to a Fidyah (expiation
or ransom) because of committing a
violation of Ihram. Allah The Almighty
Says (what means): {And whoever
among you is ill or has an ailment of
the head [making shaving necessary
must offer] a ransom of fasting [three
days] or charity or sacrifice.} [Quran

Thus, she has the option to do either of
three things: fast for three days, or feed
six needy people half a Saa’ (double
handful) for each, or slaughter a sheep
and distribute the meat to the poor
people living in the Sacred Sanctuary.
Allah Knows best.
