Assalaamu Alaykum, my aunt asked the
question if Niqaab was Fardh (obligatory)
then why in Umrah and Hajj women are not
allowed to cover their faces in Ihraam? Those
who take Hijab and Niqaab both, they say it
is obligatory to do both but other in group
says if Niqaab was Fardh, then why in Ihraam
it is told not to cover their faces. Please
guide according to Quran and Sunnah.

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 prohibition for a woman in a state of
Ihraam to wear Niqaab (a tied face covering)
does not mean that the face of a woman is
not an 'Awrah (parts of the body that must
be covered in Islam), because the prohibition
is in regard to wearing the Niqaab or any
other face covering which is a form fitting
cloth. Since a man [who is in a state of
Ihraam] is prohibited from wearing form-
fitting clothes, the woman [who is in a state
of Ihraam] is also prohibited from wearing
the Niqaab, which is a form-fitting cloth for
the face, and from wearing the gloves which
are form-fitting clothes for the hands, but
she should cover her face with anything
other than the Niqaab. She may draw her
Khimaar from her head down over her face
in the presence of marriageable men as
'Aa'ishah , may Allah be pleased with her,
used to do. She, may Allah be pleased with
her, said: “The riders (on camels and horses)
used to pass by us while we were with the
Prophet and when they get near to us,
one of us (females) would draw down her
Jilbaab (head covering) from her head over
her face, and when they would have passed
by us, we would pull it up.” [Abu Daawood].

This is evidence that a woman in a state of
Ihraam should cover her face in the presence
of marriageable men, therefore, it is not
correct to provide evidence that the face of a
woman is not an 'Awrah because a woman in
a state of Ihraam is prohibited from wearing

Allah Knows best.
