Women and Hajj , Umrah

Bismillah Walhamdulillah Was Salaatu Was Salaam 'ala Rasulillah . As-Salaam Alaikum Wa-Rahmatullahi Wa-Barakatuhu

Her period came before she did her Umrah

Menses does not prevent a woman from entering ihraam for Hajj and Umrah, but it is haraam for her to circumambulate the Kabah until after her menses ends. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said to Aaishah (may Allaah be pleased with her) when she got her menses before entering Makkah: “Do everything that the pilgrim does but do not circumambulate the House until you become pure (i.e., your menses ends). Agreed upon.

It is proven in Saheeh al-Bukhaari that when she became pure, she circumambulated the Kabah and did saai between al-Safa and al-Marwah. This indicates that if a woman gets her menses before doing tawaaf, she should not do tawaaf and saa’i until she becomes pure.

Based on this, what you wife must do is wait until she becomes pure, and then circumambulate the Kabah and do saai between al-Safa and al-Marwah, then cut her hair. Then she will have completed her umrah. And she does NOT have to offer a ransom for having gotten her menses when she was in ihraam.

Women Kissing the Black Stone

Is it correct for a woman when kissing the Black Stone to uncover her face when there are men near her ?

Kissing the Black Stone during tawaaf is Sunnah muakkadah (a confirmed Sunnah), it is one of the Sunnahs of tawaaf if it is possible to do that without crowding or disturbing anyone by your actions, following the example of the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) in that.

If it can only be done by crowding and disturbing others, then it should not be done; in that case it is sufficient to point to it with ones hand, especially for women, because the woman is awrah and because crowding is not prescribed for men, so that applies even more so to women. If it is easy for a woman to kiss the Black Stone without crowding, it is not permissible for her to uncover her face when doing so, because there are men who are not her mahrams in that place.

She wore the Burqa (face veil) when in Ihraam and she did not know that it is Haraam

Is it permissible for a woman to wear the burqa’ (a kind of face veil) when in ihraam? My family wore it and when they came back from Hajj they were told that their Hajj was not acceptable, because they wore the burqa ?

Wearing the burqa is NOT permissible for a woman in ihraam, because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Women should not wear niqaab or gloves.” Narrated by al-Bukhaari.

But there is no sin on a woman who wears the burqa in ihraam if she is unaware of the prohibition, and her Hajj is valid.

If she was aware and still she wore the burqa it means she has done a sin.

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

Standing Committee for Academic Research and Issuing Fatwas

Shaykh Abd al-‘Azeez ibn Abd-Allaah ibn Baaz, Shaykh Abd al-Razzaaq Afeefi, Shaykh Abd-Allaah ibn Qaood.

Fataawa al-Lajnah al-Daa’imah li’l-Buhooth al-‘Ilmiyyah wa’l-Ifta (11/190-192).

She did Umrah and forgot to Cut her Hair, then she did Umrah again

I did umrah and forgot to cut my hair, then I went and entered ihraam for another umrah [straight after the first one], and I did tawaaf and saai then cut my hair.
What is the ruling on my first and second umrahs, and what should I do ?

I asked our Shaykh Abd al-Rahmaan al-Barraak about this and he replied:

Doing one umrah after another is not valid according to the fuqaha of the Muslims, so the second umrah does not count and the cutting of the hair is counted for the first umrah.


Can a woman enter Ihraam when she is wearing Gold ?

It is permissible for a woman to enter ihraam with bangles or rings of gold on her hands, and so on, but it is prescribed for her to conceal that from non-mahram men, lest they be tempted by her.

Shaykh Ibn Uthaymeen (may Allaah have mercy on him) said in Majmoo Fataawa Ibn Uthaymeen (22/201): There is nothing wrong with a woman wearing whatever she wants of gold when entering ihraam, so long as that does not reach the level of extravagance, even rings and bangles on the hands, but in that case she should conceal it from non-mahram men lest any temptation occur.

She wants to go for Umrah but She Does Not have a Mahram

A woman who does not have a mahram to travel with does not have to go for Hajj or Umrah, and she is excused if she does not go. It is haraam for her to travel for Hajj or for any other reason without a mahram, and she has to be patient until Allaah makes it easy for one of her mahrams to travel with her.

The ways of goodness are many. If a Muslim cannot do one act of worship, he may strive hard in those acts of worship that he can do, until Allaah makes it easy for him to do the acts of worship that he could not do.

By the bounty of Allaah towards His believing slaves, if a person resolves to do an act of worship but he is unable to do it because of some excuse, he will be granted the reward of one who does it. Al-Bukhaari (4423) narrated from Anas ibn Maalik (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) came back from the campaign of Tabook and when he drew close to Madeenah he said: “In Madeenah there are some people who, whenever you marched or crossed a valley, were with you.” They said: “O Messenger of Allaah, but they were in Madeenah.” He said, “They were in Madeenah because some excuse kept them back.”

The scholars of the Standing Committee said:
A woman who does not have a mahram does not have to do Hajj, because in her case a mahram is part of being able to do Hajj, and being able to do it is one of the conditions of Hajj being obligatory. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

“And Hajj (pilgrimage to Makkah) to the House (Kabah) is a duty that mankind owes to Allaah, those who can afford the expenses (for one’s conveyance, provision and residence)”

[Aal ‘Imraan 3:97]

It is not permissible for her to travel for Hajj or for any other purpose unless she is accompanied by her husband or a mahram, because of the report narrated by al-Bukhaari and Muslim from Ibn ‘Abbaas (may Allaah be pleased with him), that he heard the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) say: “No man should be alone with a woman unless her mahram is present, and no woman should travel unless she has a mahram with her.”

A man stood up and said: “O Messenger of Allaah, my wife has gone out for Hajj, and I have enlisted for such and such a campaign.” He said: “Go and do Hajj with your wife.” This was also the view of al-Hasan, al-Nakha’i, Ahmad, Ishaaq, Ibn al-Mundhir and ashaab al-ra’i, and it is the correct view, because of the verse quoted, as well as the general meaning of the ahaadeeth which forbid a woman to travel without her husband or a mahram. Maalik, al-Shaafa’i and al-Awzaa’i held a different opinion and each of them stipulated a condition (allowing her to do that), but with no evidence. Ibn al-Mundhir said: they did not follow the apparent meaning of the hadeeth, and each of them stipulated a condition (allowing her to do that), but with no evidence.

Fataawa al-Lajnah al-Daa’imah li’l-Buhooth al-‘Ilmiyyah wa’l-Ifta’, 11/90, 91

And they said:

If the situation is as described – that it is not easy for your husband or a mahram of yours to travel with you to perform the obligation of Hajj – then you are not obliged to do it so long as this is the case, because the accompaniment of your husband or mahram on the journey for Hajj is one of the conditions of Hajj being obligatory for you. It is haraam for you to travel for Hajj or for any other purpose without that, even if you go with your brother’s wife and a group of women, according to the correct scholarly view, because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said, “No woman should travel except with a mahram.” (Saheeh – agreed upon). That is unless your brother also travels with his wife, in which case it is permissible to travel with him, because he is a mahram for you. Strive to do righteous deeds that do not need you to travel, and be patient in the hope that Allaah will make things easier for you and enable you to go for Hajj with your husband or mahram.

Fataawa al-Lajnah al-Daa’imah li’l-Buhooth al-‘Ilmiyyah wa’l-Ifta’, 11/96.

And Allaah knows best.
