        3) makrūh acts of iḥrām

        Issue 158: Iḥrām with black, dirty and striped dresses is makrūh. It is better to wear white colour in state of iḥrām.

        Likewise, it is makrūh to sleep on a yellow mattress or sleeps putting yellow pillow under one's head in state of iḥrām. Using henna before wearing iḥrām, in case its color would remain until wearing iḥrām, is also makrūh. It is also makrūh to say 'labbayk'in response to someone’s calling. Taking ghusl and rubbing the body with rough cloth is also considered makrūh.
