Menstruating woman entering the state of Ihram

Q 6: What is the ruling on a menstruating woman performing Hajj?

A: A menstruating woman is not forbidden to perform Hajj. The woman who enters Ihram (ritual state for Hajj or ‘Umrah) while she is menstruating has to do all the rituals of Hajj, except that she should not circumambulate the Ka‘bah until her period ends and she performs after-menstruation Ghusl (full ritual bath). The same applies to a newly-delivered woman. If she performs all the essential parts of Hajj, (Part No. 11; Page No. 173) her Hajj will be valid.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family and Companions.
