WOMEN - Tawāf Al-Ziyārah & Haydh (Menstruation)


Recommended Posts


What is the ruling if a woman makes tawāf al-ziyārah in the state of haydh ?




In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.


As long as a woman cannot perform the tawāf al-ziyārah due to her haydh there is no penalty for her in delaying it even if she does it after its time has passed (sunset on the 12th of Dhul-Hijjah.)


If a woman performs tawāf al-ziyārah while in haydh then in such a case it is wājib for her to repeat that tāwaf in a state of purity as long as she is present in Makkah. Repeating the tawāf will erase the penalty that would otherwise have been wājib on her for making tawāf al-ziyārah while in haydh.


However if she does not repeat the tawāf al-ziyārah which she had performed while in haydh the tawāf will still be valid, but a penalty of one camel or one cow will now have to be given within the precincts of the Haram.


She should also make istighfār for entering Masjid Al-Harām and doing tawāf inhaydh.


And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best

My daughter performed haj with us last year during mina stay after arfat day she started menstural bleeding she was prevented from performing tawafe ziyarah. she performed sai and came back with us on 14 dulhijja.Whether her haj is valid?



(Fatwa: 913/596/H=1432)

Her hajj was not complete rather she is still in the state of ihram. First of all, you (father) or any mahram should take her to perform tawaf ziyarah, only then her tawaf shall be done. Also, a dam (slaughtering an animal) shall be wajib due to delay. Rather if she has committed jinyat (an act against the ihram,) during this period, write it to us.

Note: The answer is correct. Also, it should be noted that if your daughter is married then it shall not be lawful for her husband to have intercourse with her until she goes Makkah and performs tawaf. (Z)
