Jinayat of covering face whilst in Ihram

Question Salam, how much sadaqah do i give for Hajj, say i covered my face for 6 hours Answer: ﺑﺴﻢ اﷲ اﻟﺮﺣﻤﻦ اﻟﺮﺣﯿﻢ In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

If a person covered their face for less than a day or night (similar to your situation, i.e. 6 hours), then it would be necessary to give the amount equal to sadaqatul fitr (1.75 kg of wheat or it’s value) to those who are eligible to receive zakat.1 You may give this donation to the poor in your own country or send it overseas; that is to say, you are not restricted to donating within the Haram of Makkah, however it is best to spend upon the poor people of the Haram.2
