If a Woman Dons Ihram for Umrah and Then She Doesn’t Become Pure

Answered by: Alimah Zakiratul Hoque

Question:

If a woman dons ihram for Umrah and then she doesn’t become pure, until the days of Hajj start

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

Answer:

A Haidah woman cannot perform Tawaaf of the Ka’bah, as it is inside a Masjid (Al Muhit Al Burhani, Vol 1, Pg 403). However, she can complete the other rituals for Hajj and perform Tawaaf after she turns pure (Al Hidayah, Vol 2, Pg 256).

Qasim narrates:`Aisha (RA) said, “We set out with the sole intention of performing Hajj and when we reached Sarif, (a place six miles from Mecca) I got my menses. Allah’s Messenger ﷺ came to me while I was weeping. He said ‘What is the matter with you? Have you got your menses?’ I replied, ‘Yes.’ He said, ‘This is a thing which Allah has ordained for the daughters of Adam. So do what all the pilgrims do with the exception of the Tawaf (Circumambulation) around the Ka`ba.” `Aisha added, “Allah’s Messenger ﷺ sacrificed cows on behalf of his wives.” (Sahih Al Bukhari, 294)

`Aish(RA) narrated: I was menstruating when I reached Mecca. So, I neither performed the Tawaf of the Ka`ba, nor the Tawaf between Safa and Marwa. Then I informed Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) about it. He replied, “Perform all the ceremonies of Hajj like the other pilgrims, but do not perform Tawaf of the Ka`ba till you get clean (from your menses).” (Sahih Al Bukhari, 1650)

As for performing Tawaf after she becomes pure, she will only need to perform Tawaaf Ziyaarah as it is compulsory, and the hajj will not be complete without it.

In summary, a woman who wears an ihram in the state of Haidh can perform all the actions of Hajj except Tawaaf. She should perform Tawaaf Ziyaarah when she becomes pure.

لا تطوف بالبيت في الهج أو العمرة لأن البيت في المسجد قد منعت عن الدخول في المسجد

و إذا حاضت المرأت عند الإحرام اغتسلت و أحرمت و صنعت كما يصعنه الحاج غير أنها لا تطوف بالبيت حتي تطهر

الْقَاسِمَ يَقُولُ سَمِعْتُ عَائِشَةَ تَقُولُ خَرَجْنَا لاَ نَرَى إِلاَّ الْحَجَّ، فَلَمَّا كُنَّا بِسَرِفَ حِضْتُ، فَدَخَلَ عَلَىَّ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم وَأَنَا أَبْكِي قَالَ مَا لَكِ أَنُفِسْتِ ‏‏ قُلْتُ نَعَمْ‏ قَالَ إِنَّ هَذَا أَمْرٌ كَتَبَهُ اللَّهُ عَلَى بَنَاتِ آدَمَ، فَاقْضِي مَا يَقْضِي الْحَاجُّ، غَيْرَ أَنْ لاَ تَطُوفِي بِالْبَيْتِ ‏‏ قَالَتْ وَضَحَّى رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم عَنْ نِسَائِهِ بِالْبَقَرِ

عَنْ عَائِشَةَ رضى الله عنها أَنَّهَا قَالَتْ قَدِمْتُ مَكَّةَ وَأَنَا حَائِضٌ، وَلَمْ أَطُفْ بِالْبَيْتِ، وَلاَ بَيْنَ الصَّفَا وَالْمَرْوَةِ، قَالَتْ فَشَكَوْتُ ذَلِكَ إِلَى رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ ‏ “‏ افْعَلِي كَمَا يَفْعَلُ الْحَاجُّ غَيْرَ أَنْ لاَ تَطُوفِي بِالْبَيْتِ حَتَّى تَطْهُرِي ‏“‏.

Only Allah knows best.
