Hair cut after umrah for man

Fatwaa ID: 1764


In man, after umrah minimum how much haircut/trim in inches absolutely necessary ?

Thank you

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

It is best for a man to shave his hair after performing ‘Umrah or Hajj. Rasulullaah ﷺ made du’aa for divine mercy thrice for those who shave their hair as opposed to once only for those who trim it. Nevertheless, the minimum amount a man who has hair must cut in order to come out of the state of ihraam is the length of one-third of a finger from a quarter of the head.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
