Is it haraam to put a bag over the private parts of someone who suffers from incontinence?

Question

What is the ruling on a person who is in ihraam and who suffers from incontinence putting something over his private parts – such as a bag – so that the najaasah (impurity) will not spread? Is this one of the things that are forbidden in ihraam?

Answer

Praise be to Allaah.

We put this question to Shaykh Muhammad ibn Saalih al-‘Uthaymeen (may Allaah preserve him), who replied that this is not one of the things that are forbidden in ihraam. And Allaah knows best.
