Regarding this matter, can female pilgrims who are menstruating be able to visit the graves of the Prophet and Raudhah? In this discussion, scholars have various opinions.

“The following is the view of the fuqaha or fiqh experts regarding the stipulations whether or not menstruating women can make pilgrimages to the Tombs of the Prophet and Raudhah,” explained the Coordinator of the Hajj Media Center (MCH) PPIH Center Dodo Murtado in Jakarta, Saturday, July 15 2023.

First, the Maliki School absolutely forbids menstruating women from passing or remaining silent (al-muktsu) in the mosque unless there is a very urgent need such as fear/avoiding threats or injustice.
