Question :

My mother performed Hajj long time ago. She experienced menses after she had stayed at Arafah, so she performed all the rituals of Hajj, except Tawaf Al-Ifadah(circumambulation around the Ka`bah) and the Farewell Tawaf. Afterwards, she returned to Jordan. However, it is worth mentioning that she went back to perform Umrah. Does the Tawaf for Umrah compensate for the Tawaf of Ifadah that she had missed, and what is the ruling on her Hajj?


The Answer :

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of The Worlds; and may his blessings and peace be upon our Prophet Mohammad and upon all his family and companions. Tawaf Al-Ifadah is a pillar of Hajj and not offering it renders one`s Hajj invalid. Not offering it because of having menses or out of ignorance doesn`t absolve a woman from the liability according to the opinion of the Majority of the Muslim scholars. Therefore, offering it is an obligation on her. Nevertheless, since she performed Umrah after she came from Hajj, then her Tawaf for Umrah compensates for the Tawaf of Ifadah that she had missed in Hajj according to the opinion of the majority of the Muslim scholars. As a result, her Hajj is considered complete and nothing is due on her, God`s willing. Al-Imam An-Nawawi(May Allah bless him) said, "If Tawaf Al-Ifadah was due on him, then he made the intention to offer another Tawaf, e.g. voluntary Tawaf, Farewell Tawaf or Tawaf of Arrival. Any of these compensates for Tawaf Al-Ifadah that he had missed. Similarly, when someone enters into the state of Ihram for voluntary Hajj or Umrah while he hasn`t offered obligatory Hajj or Umrah. In this case, voluntary Hajj or Umrah compensates for obligatory Hajj or Umrah."{Al-Majmou`(8/55)}. And Allah knows best.
