Question

I came from Yanbu‘ to perform ‘Umrah along with my family, but when we arrived in Jeddah, my wife started menstruating and I completed my ‘Umrah alone. What is the ruling on what happened to my wife?

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.

Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen  may  Allaah  have  mercy  upon  him said: "Your wife should stay until she attains purity and then perform ‘Umrah. When Safiyyah  may  Allaah  be  pleased  with  her was menstruating, the Prophet, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, asked: “Should we wait for her?” He was told that she had performed her Tawaaf Al-Ifaadhah, so the Prophet, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, said: “So, she can leave.” This Hadeeth proves that if a woman is menstruating before performing Tawaaf Al-Ifaadhah, she should wait until she attains purity then perform Tawaaf. The Tawaaf of ‘Umrah is the same as the Tawaaf Al-Ifaadhah as it is one of the pillars of ‘Umrah. Hence, if a woman is menstruating before performing Tawaaf, she should wait until she attains purity, then perform Tawaaf."

Allaah Knows best.
