Hair falling in Ihram
On my umarah visit, I got my periods on the flight. I am staying at room in the hotel, waiting for it to finish. But I had made niyat of umarah on the plane. So I am in a state of ihram. While sleeping, 1/2 hair of my head got broken on their own- does it qualify for Damm? Pls reply at the earliest
In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.
In principle, if hair falls off on its own without any action of the Muhrim (the one in Ihram), it does not constitute any Damm nor Sadaqah.
Therefore, you are not required to give any Sadaqah nor Damm.
In any case, even if you purposely plucked 1 or 2 hair strands, Damm is not necessary. You are only required to give a small amount of Sadaqah (less than the amount of Sadaqah Fitr) at your discretion to the poor.
And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
