The pilgrim who enters ihraam for Hajj or ‘Umrah has to do the following:
He has to adhere to that which Allaah has enjoined of religious laws, such as praying on time in congregation.
He has to avoid all that Allaah has forbidden of obscene and immoral speech and sin, because Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):“So whosoever intends to perform Hajj therein (by assuming Ihraam), then he should not have sexual relations (with his wife), nor commit sin, nor dispute unjustly during the Hajj”
He should avoid annoying the Muslims with his words or actions, at the holy sites and elsewhere.
He should avoid all things that are forbidden when in ihraam:
a).So he should not cut anything from his hair or nails, but removing thorns and the like is fine, even if that results in some bleeding.
b)He should not apply perfume after entering ihraam, either to his body, his clothes, his food or his drink. He should not wash with perfumed soap either. But if any traces of perfume remain from that which he put on before entering ihraam, that does not matter.
c)He should not hunt.d)He should not have intercourse with his wife.
e)He should not touch her with desire or kiss her etc.
f).He should not enter into a marriage contract for himself or arrange a marriage for anyone else, or propose marriage to a woman for himself or on behalf of another.
g). He should not wear gloves, but wrapping one’s hands with a piece of cloth does not matter.
These prohibitions apply equally to men and women.
