The eminent Muslim scholar and renowned Da`iyah, Sheikh `Abdel Khaliq Hasan Ash-Shareef, states:

“As far as Islamic Shari`ah is concerned, there is nothing wrong with using the [small] face mask for the purpose of protecting against infections while one is in the state of Ihram. There is nothing in the sources of Shari`ah to prohibit this act. There is also nothing wrong to wear it during Prayers. May Allah accept all our endeavours!”
