Ruling on Fard Tawaf during a woman’s monthly course

Ruling on Fard Tawaf during a woman’s monthly course

Question 1: What do the blessed ‘Ulama [Islamic scholars] and Muftis [Islamic jurists] state regarding the following matter: On the occasion of Hajj, if any Islamic sister’s monthly course begins on 8th Zul-Hijjah and the air ticket is scheduled for her return before her monthly course comes to an end; she does not perform Tawaf-uz-Ziyarah and there is extreme difficulty in getting the ticket cancelled, what is the solution for her in the light of blessed Shari’ah in this case?

بِسْمِ اللّٰہِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِیْمِ

اَلْجَوَابُ بِعَوْنِ الْمَلِکِ الْوَھَّابِ اَللّٰھُمَّ ھِدَایَۃَ الْحَقِّ وَالصَّوَابِ

Such a woman should get her ticket cancelled and should perform Fard Tawaf after she becomes Taahirah [i.e. after her monthly course comes to an end] even if she becomes Taahirah after the 12th of Zul-Hijjah. If there is extreme difficulty for her own self or for the other travelling companions in getting the ticket cancelled, even then it is impermissible and a sin for such a woman to enter the Masjid in this state of impurity [i.e. during her monthly course]. If she enters [the Masjid] in the same state [of impurity] and she also performs Tawaf, she will be a sinner. However, in this case, the Fard of Tawaf will be regarded as performed and it will be compulsory for her to repent of this sin. Moreover, it will be compulsory for her to give a Badanah (i.e. sacrifice of a cow or a camel) in Haram because of performing Tawaf in the state of impurity. Then, if she succeeds afterwards in performing Tawaf-uz-Ziyarah again after attaining Taharah [purity] till the sunset of 12th of Zul-Hijjah, Kaffarah [atonement] will stand remitted; and after the 12th of Zul-Hijjah, if she finds a chance and performs Tawaf again after attaining Taharah [purity], Badanah will stand remitted but she will have to give Dam [دَم].

وَاللہُ اَعْلَمُ عَزَّوَجَلَّ وَ رَسُوْلُہ اَعْلَم صَلَّی اللّٰہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ واٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّم

For Hajj and ‘Umrah, can a woman take tablets which stop the monthly course?

Question 2: What do the blessed ‘Ulama and Muftis state regarding the following matter: For Hajj and ‘Umrah, can a woman take tablets which stop the monthly course?

بِسْمِ اللّٰہِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِیْمِ

اَلْجَوَابُ بِعَوْنِ الْمَلِکِ الْوَھَّابِ اَللّٰھُمَّ ھِدَایَۃَ الْحَقِّ وَالصَّوَابِ

Yes! She can take [such tablets] provided that they do not become a cause of any great and immediate harm to the body, ‘لعدم المانع الشرعی’. It is not allowed [to take such tablets] if they become a cause of any great and immediate harm to the body. Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ has stated in the Holy Quran:

وَ لَا تُلْقُوْا بِاَیْدِیْكُمْ اِلَى التَّهْلُكَةِ ﳝ-

Translation from Kanz-ul-Iman: And do not fall into destruction with your own hands.

(Part 2, Surah Al-Baqarah, Ayah 195)

وَاللہُ اَعْلَمُ عَزَّوَجَلَّ وَ رَسُوْلُہ اَعْلَم صَلَّی اللّٰہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ واٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّم

What is the Islamic ruling if a woman carries out Halq or Taqseer of her husband after Tawaf and Sa’ee of ‘Umrah?

Question 3: What do the blessed ‘Ulama state regarding the following matter: A woman who has finished performing Tawaf and Sa’ee of ‘Umrah but not yet carried out Taqseer, can she carry out Halq or Taqseer of her husband when the time has arrived for him to come out of Ihram (i.e. after he has finished performing Tawaf and Sa’ee of ‘Umrah)?

بِسْمِ اللّٰہِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِیْمِ

اَلْجَوَابُ بِعَوْنِ الْمَلِکِ الْوَھَّابِ اَللّٰھُمَّ ھِدَایَۃَ الْحَقِّ وَالصَّوَابِ

Yes! She can do so, because a Muhrim [a person in the state of Ihram] can shave his own head or someone else’s head when the time has arrived to come out of Ihram even if the second person [whose head is being shaved] is also a Muhrim and the time has arrived for him to come out of Ihram.

وَاللہُ اَعْلَمُ عَزَّوَجَلَّ وَ رَسُوْلُہ اَعْلَم صَلَّی اللّٰہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ واٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّم
