What to do if a Woman Sees blood after Completing Umrah?

19th March 2020

السلام عليكم و رحمة الله و بركاته

Question: A woman thought her periods had finished. She performed Ghusl, performed her Umrah and then cut her hair. She thereafter noticed some spotting (within ten days of her period). Must she now give a dam and remain in the state of Ihram until she completes her umrah again or does mere repeating the Umrah suffice?


الجواب حامداً و مصلياً

In the name of Allāh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful



In reference to your query an umrah performed by such a woman in the described manner will not be completed.[1] She must, therefore, repeat her umrah after finishing her periods. After repeating her Umrah then no dam is required. Dam – sacrificing – of a sheep or goat only becomes necessary if she does not repeat it, as the dam is prescribed to expiate the mistake of performing umrah during menstruating.[2]

جو طواف جنابت یا حیض و نفاس کی حالت میں کیا ہو اس کا اعادہ واجب ہے اور جو بے وضو کیا ہے اس کا اعادہ مستحب ہے


Qari Saeed Ahmed Saheb. Muallim Alhujjaj. Wajibat hajj Mey sey kisi wajib ku trq karna, p. 245

طواف عمرہ پورا یا اکثر یا اقل اگر چہ ایک ہی چکر ہو اگر جنابت یا حیض و نفاس کی حالت میں یا بے وضوء کیا تو دم واجب ہوگا

[2] Hidayaha, Book of Hajj

وَمَنْ طَافَ لِعُمْرَتِهِ وَسَعَى عَلَى غَيْرِ وُضُوءٍ وَحَلَّ فَمَا دَامَ بِمَكَّةَ يُعِيدُهُمَا وَلَا شَيْءَ عَلَيْهِ) أَمَّا إعَادَةُ الطَّوَافِ فَلِتَمَكُّنِ النَّقْصِ فِيهِ بِسَبَبِ الْحَدَثِ. وَأَمَّا السَّعْيُ فَلِأَنَّهُ تَبَعٌ لِلطَّوَافِ، وَإِذَا أَعَادَهُمَا لَا شَيْءَ عَلَيْهِ لِارْتِفَاعِ النُّقْصَانِ (وَإِنْ رَجَعَ إلَى أَهْلِهِ قَبْلَ أَنْ يُعِيدَ فَعَلَيْهِ دَمٌ) لِتَرْكِ الطَّهَارَةِ فِيهِ
