Hajj of woman in nifaas

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum 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:

If a woman in nifaas (i.e., one who is bleeding following childbirth) stops bleeding and becomes pure before forty days, is her Hajj valid? If she does not see the tuhr (clear discharge indicating purity), what should she do, noting that she intended to do Hajj?.

(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.)

Praise be to Allaah.

Shaykh Muhammad ibn ‘Uthaymeen (may Allaah have mercy on him) said:

 If a woman in nifaas becomes pure before forty days, then she should do ghusl and start praying, and do everything that women who are taahir (pure) do, even tawaaf, because there is no minimum length of nifaas.

 If she does not see the tuhr, her Hajj is still valid, but she should not circumambulate the House until she becomes pure, because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) did not allow menstruating women to circumambulate the House and women in nifaas are like menstruating women in this regard.

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