Women in menses can skip tawaf wida in hajj

Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,

As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)


One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

Is it true that a menstruating women is exempt from Vidai Tawaaf? A little background - The woman in question was performing Haj Ifraad and was a resident of Jeddah, Saudi Arabia


(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)




Women in menses can skip tawaf wida in hajj

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


Both Bukhari and Muslim report from Hadrat Abdullah Ibn Abbas (r.a.) that he said, "A menstruating woman (pilgrim) is permitted to depart (without performing the tawaaf ul wida)." According to another report, he said: "People were ordered to make the tawaaf ul wida of the Ka'bah their last rite of Hajj; the menstruating women were, however, excused from it."


It is also reported by Muslim and Bukhari that Hadrat Safiyah (r.a.), the wife of the Prophet (saws) had her monthly period during Hajj. When the Prophet (saws) was informed about this, he (saws) said, "Is she going to hold us here (till she performs her rites of Hajj)?" He (saws) was told that she had already performed all her Hajj rites except the Farewell Tawaf. The Prophet (saws) said, "There is no harm then, (let us go)."


Regardless of whether the woman pilgrim was performing Hajj Tamatto, Qiraan or Ifraad, if she was experiencing her menstruation she is excused from performing the tawaaf ul wida.


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.


Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
