Janab Mufti Sahab,
If a lady who is going for Hajj Tamattu gets her menses in the journey, then she cannot perform
the Umrah.As many go a few days before Hajj, so by the time she is clean, then it may be time for her to leave for MINA.Then this complete Umrah has to be done after Hajj or can she on arrival do the Sa'yi only by entering from the ouside gate leading direct to Safa & not through the courtyard as Tawaf is not allowed.So please let me know what is correct?

Dear Sister in Islam,
The answer to your question is as follows:

Mutamatti¡¯ is a pilgrim who performs Umrah first in the months of Hajj (Shawwaal, Zulqa¡¯dah and the first eight days of Zulhijjah) and then shaves or trims the hair of head. Thereafter he will stay in Makkatul Mukarramah and put on Ihraam for performing Hajj on 8th of Zulhijjah. Thus, a Mutamatti¡¯ performs Umrah first and then Hajj in one journey with two different Ihraams; one for Umrah and the other for Hajj.

As far as the matter of a woman who intends to perform Hajj Attamattu¡¯ and gets menses after she puts on Ihraam for Umrah is concerned, she will wait for the end of menses period to perform Tawaf and Sa¡¯y. This is because, Tawaf is followed by Sa¡¯y and she is prohibited to perform Tawaf in the stated condition. However, if she remains in the same state and relieves when the time for Hajj commences then she will leave Umrah by practising any deed prohibited during Ihraam condition such as trimming hair. Thereafter she will put on Ihraam for performing Hajj. She has to perform Qaza of the Umrah she left incomplete whether in the same year, after completing Hajj, or in the years to come and sacrifice a goat inside Haram area for breaking the Ihraam of Umrah. (Al-ainee 4/382)

And Allah knows the best,
