Answer

(Fatwa: 1051/1051/M=1431)

(1) It will be cut equal to the tip of finger (equal to one third of a finger).
(2) It is necessary for the woman to abandon the tawaf in such state, and perform it after the menstruation stops; because tawaf is not lawful in the state of menstruation.
(3) She can do Sa’i between Safa and Marwah in the state of menstruation. In-sha-Allah, her Umrah will be accepted.
