Haidh ( monthly periods ) in state of Ihram?

Nasihah (Advice): The first Masjid in Islam

 

Abu Zarr Al-Ghifaari Radhiyallahu Anhu said: “Oh Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam)! Which Masjid was built first?” He said: “Al-Masjid-ul-Haraam (in Makkah Mukarramah).”I said: “then which?”He said: “then Al-Masjid-ul-Aqsa (in Jerusalem).” I said: “How many years between them?”He said: “Forty years, but the whole earth is a Masjid for you, so pray wherever you are when the time for prayer comes.” (Ibn Majah)

Question and Answer:

 

  1. At the moment, Im in Makkah Mukarramah. I passed the Miqaat and I am in the state of Ihraam. If I experience my Haidh in the state of Ihraam, what should I do?

 

(Question published as received)

 

  1. In the enquired situation, if you are in the state of Ihraam in Makkah Mukarramah and you experience Haidh (menstruation), you should wait until your Haidh (menstruation) terminates and then you should continue with your Umrah and Tawaaf etc as a women in Haidh (menstruation) is not allowed to perform the Tawaaf of Umrah etc. in the state Haidh (menstruation).

 

However, if your Haidh (menstruation) did not terminate before the completion of your Tawaf of Umrah and you performed your Tawaaf of Umrah in such a situation, then in such a case, a penalty (Damm) will be necessary (Waajib).

 

A penalty (Damm) refers to slaughtering an animal (sheep, goat) within the confines of Makkah Mukaaramah. (Fataawa Darul Uloom Zakariyya 3/420)
