Can a woman cover her face in Ihram?


According to Sharia, it is not permissible for women pilgrims to cover their faces while they are in Ihram. If a lady engages in this behaviour, she must slaughter a sheep as atonement and give its meat to the needy. However, if women feel the need to do so in the presence of men, they may cover their faces in a way that prevents them from touching their faces.
