What's the ruling if a woman makes Tawaf al Ziyarah in the state of Haidh


What's the ruling if a woman makes tawāf al-ziyārah in the state of haydh ? Please reply with reference.



In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.


As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.


As long as a woman cannot perform the tawāf al-ziyārah due to her haydh there is no penalty for her in delaying it even if she does it after its time has passed (sunset on the 12th of Dhul-Hijjah.) [i] [ii]


If a woman performs tawāf al-ziyārah while in haydh then in such a case it is wājib for her to repeat that tāwaf in a state of purity as long as she is present in Makkah. Repeating the tawāf will erase the penalty that would otherwise have been wājib on her for making tawāf al-ziyārah while in haydh.


However if she does not repeat the tawāf al-ziyārah which she had performed while in haydh  the tawāf will still be valid, but a penalty of one camel or one cow will now have to be given within the precincts of the Haram. [iii] [iv]


She should also make istighfār for entering Masjid Al-Harām and doing tawāf in haydh. [v]


And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best

 ولو طاف طواف الزيارة محدثا فعليه شاة، وإن كان جنبا فعليه بدنة وكذا لو طاف أكثره جنبا أو محدثا والأفضل [iv]

 أن يعيد الطواف ما دام بمكة ولا ذبح عليه والأصح أن يعيد في الحدث ندبا وفي الجنابة وجوبا ثم إن أعاده وقد طاف محدثا لا دم عليه، وإن أعاده بعد أيام النحر، وإن أعاده وقد طاف جنبا في أيام النحر لا شيء عليه، وإن أعاده بعد أيام النحر يجب الدم عند أبي حنيفة - رحمه الله تعالى - بالتأخير كذا في الكافي وتسقط عنه البدنة
