Hadith No: 349 Narrated/Authority of Aisha From: Sunan An-Nasai. Chapter 3, The Book of Menstruation and Istihadah “We went out with the Messenger of Allah (saw) with no intention other than Hajj. When he was in Sarif I began menstruating. The Messenger of Allah (saw) entered upon me and I was weeping. He said, ‘What is the matter with you? Has your Nifas begun?’ I said: ‘Yes.’ He said: ‘This is something that Allah the Mighty and Sublime has decreed for the daughters of Adam. Do what the pilgrims do but do not perform Tawaf around the House.'” (Sahih)  In Menses, women will bathe or perform wudhu with the INTENTION of Umrah This will not make her paak Sit, facing Qiblah if possible Make Intention followed by TALBIYYAH. Remain engaged in ZIKR, DU’AA TALBIYYAH Enter Masjid for umrah after becoming Paak. If menses started after she had done the Ihram for Umrah and she was unable to perform Umrah and Hajj activities start: Cancel Umrah, by making intention to cancel Ihram, undo hair and comb it. Do new Ihram for Hajj and start Hajj A’amaal. (Going Mina, Arafat etc) She will do Qadhaa of Umrah after Hajj. Give penalty/ Dam by sacrificing goat or one seventh of large animal.(cow, camel)                  A woman in her menses will delay the Tawaf e Ziyarat until she becomes clean          It will be permissible for her to delay this even after the 12th Dhul Hijjah, no penalty will be due.          Without Tawaaf e Ziyaarat Hajj is not complete, it has to be done.          She would be exempt from Tawaaf e Wida if she is unable to do it due to her menses. No penalty will be due.

Can a women take tablets to delay her Menses cycle?

Praise be to Allah. Firstly:  Tawaaf al-ifaadah is one of the pillars or essential parts of the Hajj, which is not waived in the case of a menstruating woman or anyone else, but the menstruating woman cannot circumambulate the Ka‘bah until she becomes pure (i.e., her period ends and she does ghusl), because the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said to ‘Aa’ishah when she menstruated: “Do what the pilgrims do, except do not circumambulate the Ka‘bah until you become pure.” Narrated by al-Bukhaari (1650) It says in al-Mawsoo‘ah al-Fiqhiyyah (18/320): There is no difference of opinion among the fuqaha’ that menses does not prevent the woman from doing any of the actions of Hajj apart from tawaaf, because the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said to ‘Aa’ishah when she menstruated: “Do what the pilgrims do, except do not circumambulate the Ka‘bah. End quote. There is nothing wrong with a woman taking some medicine to prevent menstruation or shorten its duration, so that she will be able to circumambulate the Ka‘bah (tawaaf). Shaykh ‘Abd al-‘Azeez ibn Baaz (may Allah have mercy on him) was asked: What is the ruling on a woman using pills to prevent her monthly period during the days of Hajj? He (may Allah have mercy on him) replied: There is nothing wrong with that, because it serves a purpose, so that she will be able to do tawaaf with the people and so that she will not hold her travelling companions back.
