A: If the matter is as you describe, then you may cover your head whilst you are in Ihram, and expiate for that by sacrificing a sheep and giving it to the poor in Makkah or by feeding six poor people in the sanctuary, giving each one half a Sa` (1 Sa` = 2.172 kg) of dates or some other staple food, or you may fast for three days. This applies to Ihram for Hajj. Similarly, if you enter Ihram for ‘Umrah, you must offer another expiation.
May Allah grant us success! May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions!
