Ruling on the farewell tawaaf for the disabled and for menstruating women
Dear Brothers & Sisters,As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Do menstruating women, women bleeding following childbirth, disabled people and sick people have to do the farewell tawaaf?.
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)

Praise be to Allaah.
Menstruating woman and women who are bleeding following childbirth do not have to do the farewell tawaaf. The disabled should do it, carried by others, as should those who are sick, because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “None of you should leave until the last thing that he does is to circumambulate the House.” And it was narrated in al-Saheehayn that Ibn ‘Abbaas said: The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) told the people that the last thing they should do in Makkah was to circumambulate the Ka’bah, but he exempted menstruating women. Another hadeeth indicates that women who are bleeding following childbirth (nifaas) are like menstruating women and do not have to do the farewell tawaaf.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
