Question :

What is the expiation for using perfumed soap while being in a state of Ihram(ritual consecration) for Umrah(after making the intent for Ihram)?

The Answer :

It is impermissible to use perfumed soap while being in a state of Ihram, and one who does so is obliged to fast, give Sadaqa(charity), or offer a sacrifice in expiation: He/she either fast for three days, feed six needy persons from the Haram area(one kilo of rice for each), or sacrifice an animal within the boundaries of that area and divide it amongst the poor and needy there. However, it is permissible for him/her to offer fasting after going home.
