Whilst in ihraam, played with hair and some hair fell out
*Please appropriately reference this fatwa to: www.fatwa-online.com, thankyou!*
Question: I have a habit of playing with my hair when I am thinking. After I had entered the state of ihraam, I forgetfully did this and some hair fell out. Do I have to make an expiation?

Response: There is nothing required of you due to that which Allaah (Subhaanahu wa Ta'aala) mentions regarding the believers that they said:

{Our Lord! Punish us not if we forget or fall into error…}, [Soorah al-Baqarah, Aayah 286].

And Allaah has responded to their request as it has been mentioned on the authority of the Messenger of Allaah (sal-Allaahu `alayhe wa sallam) that Allaah (Subhaanahu wa Ta'aala) said:

((I have done (this))). Narrated by Imaam Muslim in his Saheeh.
