Performing hajj for a woman in menstruation or postnatal bleeding

Question

What is the manner of performing hajj for a woman in menstruation or postnatal bleeding?

Answer

A woman in menstruation or postnatal bleeding must continue the rites of hajj and ‘umrah and refrain from making tawaf until she is pure. As for a woman who fears that her companions may depart before she performs tawaf and cannot wait until she is pure from menstruation, some scholars have maintained that it is permissible for her to circumambulate the Ka’bah while wearing a sanitary pad to prevent her from soiling the Mosque. As for tawaf al-wada’, it is permissible for a woman to omit it.

And God Almighty knows best.
