She performed Tawaf while she was experiencing Sufrah
Q: My wife wanted to perform Hajj
Allah's Sacred House.
All praise be to Allah, she did it this year and she performed all the rituals in
She performed Tawaf (circumambulation of the Ka`bah) and Sa`y (going between Safa and Marwah during `Umrah) without any mistakes committed. However, she started to feel the beginning of the monthly period after throwing the pebbles at Jamarat-ul-`Aqabah (the closest pebble-throwing area to Makkah), although she took medical precautions before going to perform Hajj. We went to a private hospital in
and paid more than we could afford. She received intensive medical treatment there to ensure that the bleeding would stop completely. Actually, she performed after-menstruation Ghusl (full ritual bath), then, she performed Tawaf-ul-Ifadah (final obligatory circumambulation of the Ka`bah in Hajj) and Sa`y. After she completed the Tawaf, she checked her clothes and saw that her underwear was clean. Then, she felt some red discharge inside, but it neither reached her underwear nor did any of it flow out during Tawaf.Then, she continued taking the prescribed drug, as we were part of an organized Hajj group that must return on the twelfth day, i.e. the day of Tawaf-ul-Wada` (circumambulation of the Ka`bah on leaving Makkah). Yet my wife experienced a slightly yellow discharge, so she performed Ghusl again and circumambulated the Ka`bah, for fear that it would be wrong on her part if she did not perform Tawaf, as the red discharge had already stopped.

Both Tawaf-ul-Ifadah and Sa`y which she performed are valid, as she was not sure that any blood was discharged during performing Tawaf. Tawaf-ul-Wada` is not valid because
she performed it while she was experiencing Sufrah (yellow vaginal discharge during or after menstruation). A menstruating woman is not obliged to perform Tawaf-ul-Wada`. Thus, it becomes clear to you that she is required to do nothing, and her Hajj is valid In sha’a-Allah (if Allah wills), if the case is as you have mentioned.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
