Taking small children to the Haram Shareef

Q: Are children allowed in the haram for umrah with parents once they are using diapers? Is it ok to bring the child to Ka'ba or tawaaf when there's a possibility that diaper may not be clean?

A: Small little children should not be brought into the Haram Shareef. The hadeeth prohibits bringing small little children to the masaajid.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
