Menstruation before Tawaf Qudum/’Umrah

  • If menstruation comes to a woman after she has made Ihram for ‘Umrah but before she performs Tawaf Qudum/’Umrah; and she does not attain purity up to 8th Dhul Hijjah; then, she should make Ihram for Hajj on that day from her residence and move out along with other pilgrims to Mina. She would thus be deemed to be offering Qirān.
  • She will perform all Hajj activities. When her menses cease, she takes the ritual bath, performs Tawaf once, and Sa’ay once. That would be sufficient for her Hajj and ‘Umrah. [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]
