Q 1: is it permissible for a Muhrim (pilgrim in the ritual state for Hajj and ‘Umrah) to wash all their body to cool down and why?

A: It is permissible for a Muhrim to wash their whole body to cool down, if it is hot. This will invigorate them in performing this act of ‘Ibadah (worship). They must, however, be careful while having the bath not to remove any of their hair or skin.

May Allah grant us success! May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions!
