If the pilgrim enters ihraam wearing his regular clothes for
some reason, such as cold, sickness, and the like, then he is permitted to
do that according to sharee’ah. What the one who wears sewn garments has to
do is to fast for three days, or feed six poor persons, giving half a saa’
of the local staple food to each person, or sacrifice a sheep that meets the
conditions of udhiyah (sacrifice). The same ruling applies if he covers his
head. Fasting may be done in any place, but feeding the poor and sacrificing
the sheep must be done in the sanctuary of Makkah.
And Allaah is the Source of strength. May Allaah send blessings and peace upon our Prophet Muhammad.
