Woman in haiz performing umrah

Q: My family and I plan to visit Makkah Mukarramah from Riyadh to perform Umrah. In case my wife has her menses before travelling, can we still go to Makkah?

A: Yes, however she should remain in the state of ihraam. Only after her menses ends she will make ghusal and then enter the musjid haraam to do the umrah.

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