In this fatwa:
- Menstruation doesn’t stop women from entering into Ihram for Hajj or Umrah. A menstruating woman can recite the talbiyah “Labbayk Allahumma bi Hajj” or “Labbaykh Allahumma bi Umrah”.
- A woman on her period does every ritual of Hajj except for making tawaf around the Kabah, until she is purified i.e., her period ends and she takes a ghusl.
- A woman on her period can attend Arafat, Muzdalifah, throw stones and do Sa`i between Safa and Marwa.
