Is Using a Friend’s Ihram for Hajj Permissible?

06 August, 2019
Q As-Salamu alaykum. I am working in Riyadh. I will perform my first `Umrah next week. Should I buy a new ihram or can I use my friend's ihram?


Wa `alaykum As-Salamu waRahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful. 

All praise and thanks are due to Allah, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger.

Answering your question, Sheikh Ahmad Kutty, a senior lecturer and an Islamic scholar at the Islamic Institute of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, states:

There is no need for you to buy a new ihram (attire). You are allowed to use your friend’s ihram as long as it is clean. You may as well use the money for greater priorities.

Allah Almighty knows best.
