Veil touching the face in ihraam

Q: I performed Umrah with my face covered such that the veil was touching it for a duration less than 12 hours. Mufti sahab replied that I am supposed to give sadaqa. Please clarify:

1- What is the amount of sadaqa that I should give?

2- Should sadaqa be given to someone in Makkah Mukarramah or can I give it to someone in Karachi as I am residing here?


1. The amount of sadaqatul fitr (½ saa` (1.635,876 kg) wheat or 1 saa` (3.271,752 kg) barley or its equivalent in cash).

2. It is better to give it to some poor person in the Haram area.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
