Can a Woman in Haidh Go Inside the Courtyard of the Haram?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by DarulIftaBirmingham

Answered by: Alimah Safiyya-Maryam Ahmed


Can a woman in haidh go inside the courtyard of the haram?

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful


A menstruating woman cannot enter any part of the Sacred Precinct (Haram) but can enter the outer courtyards of the Haram as they are not considered part of the Masjid. The grounds between Safa and Marwah, where the Sa’eeis performed, are not within the boundaries of the Haram either, therefore she can enter this area whilst in haydh or nifas.

Only Allah knows best

أما في جواز دخول الحائض فليس للفناء حكم المسجد فيه، انتهى. وأما في شرح الزاهدي من أن سطح المسجد وظلة بابه في حكمه فليس على اطلاقه بل مقيد في الظلة بأنها حكمه في حق جواز الاقتداء لا في حرمة الدخول للجنب والحائض كما لا يخفي (البحر الرائق شرح كنز الدقائق, كتاب الطهارة, باب الحيض, صفحة ٣٣٩, دار الكتب العلمية)
