What should the menstruating woman do when she enters ihraam?


I am going to Umrah inshallah. My question is what is a women to do if she gets her period? I pray this will not happen, but what parts of the Umrah can she perform?


Praise be to Allaah.

If a woman who has her period enters ihraam, she should do everything that other pilgrims do in Hajj or ‘Umrah, apart from performing Tawaaf around the Ka’bah.

She should delay Tawaaf until she is clean (when her period ends).

Shaykh ‘Abd al-Kareem al-Khudayr

 She can make dhikr, make du’aa’, recite the Talbiyah and do good deeds. And Allaah knows best.
