Making umrah in the state of istihaazah

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I live in Saudi Arabia and want to perform umrah on Sunday (9 August ) before returning to South Africa. However, my menstruation has begun today (7 August) and my last period ended on 26 July (it was the full ten days). The space between then and now is 12 days and I am still performing my salah as to my knowledge there has to be a 15 day gap. Can I preform umrah or not?


A: It would seem that you are in istihaadhah and in the state of istihaadhah namaaz and umrah are all valid and permissible.

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