Umrah and Periods


I have a question that I’m having difficulty in finding an answer for. Would appreciate some help! I have read and heard that if a female gets her period during Umrah/Hajj, she can perform every ritual except Tawaf. Now some scholars say she can enter haram and others say she can’t… I’m confused, because to do the Sai (in periods) one would have to enter the Haram. Can I enter haram and sit only! Jazak illah


You cannot enter any Masjid during your period. And it’s more stressed on not entering Masjid al Haram and nabawi at all. I wonder how you will do your umrah when everything is under the Masjid?!

Hope this was useful.
