Hajj Ritual

17. Applying Body Oil

#257: A pilgrim who is in the state of consecration is not allowed to apply oil on their body, even if it is free from perfume and fragrances unless it is done out of necessity or in the context of a medical treatment.

#258: If scented oil is used deliberately, the kaffārah amounts to one sheep. If it was done out of ignorance, as a precaution, amends should be made by giving food to a needy person.
