Question:

I traveled from the city of Abha intending to perform ‘Umrah and visit my relatives. During performing Tawaaf for ‘Umrah, I got my menstrual period and I stopped my Tawaaf. Is it permissible for me to travel to Jeddah and Taa‘if, then, return to Abha? Or should I wait until I become in a state of Tahaarah (ritual purity)?

Answer:
 
All perfect praise be to Allaah, the Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His Slave and Messenger.
 
If your menstrual period came after assuming Ihraam for ‘Umrah, you are required to remain in the state of Ihraam until your menstrual period is over and you become in a state of Tahaarah. After that, you can perform your Tawaaf and Sa‘ee (walking between Mounts Safa and Marwah) and complete your ‘Umrah.
 
During the period in which you remain in the state of Ihraam, you must keep away from the violations of Ihraam that a pilgrim usually avoids in terms of avoiding perfume, wearing Niqaab and gloves, sexual intercourse with your husband, cutting hair or clipping nails, etc...
 
It is not permissible for you to terminate your Ihraam and not complete your ‘Umrah. The only alternative is to complete your ‘Umrah. If you travel to Jeddah or Taa‘if or returned home, you would still be in the state of Ihraam and required to keep away from the violations of Ihraam until you go back and complete your rituals of ‘Umrah.
 
Allaah Knows best.
