Shaving the head for second ‘umrah

Fatwaa ID: 350

Assalaamu Alaikum, Is it Mandatory to shave the Head after Umrah and more specifically if someone does another Umrah the same day or next day, do they have to get the head shaved again(citing they just got their head shaved recently). Jazak Allahu Khair

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

May Allaah Ta’aala accept your ‘umrahs. It is necessary to shave or trim the head after every ‘umrah. It is better and more rewarding to shave it. If you have shaved after one or you do not have hair, it will be sufficient to pass the blade over the head.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
