Q: Can a woman in menstruation (haidh) enter the Masjid al-Aqsa compound? This is a compound surrounded by walls which contains several buildings such as the Dome of the Rock, Masjid al-Qibli, etc. Is the entire compound counted as the masjid (meaning that woman in menstruation can’t enter) or is just the buildings counted as masjid and the rest as courtyard (which a woman in menstruation can enter)?
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
