Question

Should a woman trot in tawaaf or between the two green markers in saa’i between al-Safa and al-Marwah, as men do?.

Answer

Praise be to Allaah.

Ibn al-Mundhir said: The scholars are unanimously agreed that women do not have to trot around the Ka’bah or between al-Safa and al-Marwah, and they do not have to uncover one shoulder, because the purpose behind these two actions is to show strength, and women are not included in that because the basic principle for women is to conceal themselves, but in trotting and baring one shoulder they would be uncovering themselves. End quote. 

And Allaah is the Source of strength. May Allaah send blessings and peace upon our Prophet Muhammad and his family and companions. End quote.
