Menstruation and ihraam

Question ID: 29812

As salaamualaykum Mufti Saheb

Insha Allah I intend performing Umrah. I intend on spending 5 nights in Madinah first and then 8 nights in Makkah. My menstrual cycle is irregular and for health reasons doctors have advised that I cannot use any medication to regularise the cycle. My concern is how will the Ihraam work. If my cycle commences just before leaving for Makkah how long will I have to wait to come out of Ihraam.


Was salaam

You will go into Ihraam even if you are in the state of Haiz (periods) . our last cycle duration you will focus on - once blood stops. Bath, go and perform your Umrah.
