Question

I performed ‘Umrah while wearing trousers out of ignorance, do I incur any sort of compensation? Also, I got married after performing this ‘Umrah, which was the first ‘Umrah for me and I did not perform any other ‘Umrah after that. Was my marriage contract valid?
Fatwa
All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.
The person in the state of Ihraam is not allowed to wear trousers unless he could not find a garment, as authentically narrated on the authority of Ibn ‘Abbaas, may Allah be pleased with him. If you were ignorant of that ruling, there would be no expiation on you and no sin. Allah The Almighty Says (what means): {And there is no blame upon you for that in which you have erred but [only for] what your hearts intended. And ever Is Allah Forgiving and Merciful.} [Quran 33:5]
Your marriage contract is certainly valid as long as you concluded it when you were out of the state of Ihraam. That is because the pilgrim in the state of Ihraam is the one who is prevented from concluding the marriage contract, as authentically narrated on the authority of ‘Uthmaan, may Allah be pleased with him [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]. Allah Knows best.
