Was planning to upload this only as a video. But since I’m too fast with that (not), I thought video can wait. So hope you benefit and don’t forget to share :)
So I guess you believe you will live forever?
You may think you can cheat death – You might be that clever!
For Allah’s limits you constantly transgress
So the ones around you might be impressed
By the way you act so cool you know
Putting up every time an excellent show
NO you don’t know that you’re falling in a trap
This world is a dream and you’re taking a nap
In the lap of your grave; your final resting place
But in this dream you are always in a race
For name and fame and everything that glitters
But know my friend that the truth is much bitter
You’ll wither and lose your vigor in time
You never know that this might be your last rhyme
So it’s time you submit yourself completely to HIM
Get hold of yourself; stop following your whim
And win, this race, so you get a shining light
On the day when people would be looking for brightness
Sadness, madness and chaos around you
Your mother and your father when won’t recognize you
Surprise you, despise you, they would push you away
“Where are the people all those nice things who used to say?!!”
So HEY! It’s time to snap out of this illusion.
And what is the worldly life except the enjoyment of delusion. [57:20]
Question: what exactly of Hajj/`Umrah can a woman NOT do during menstruation?
Narrated ‘Aisha (radiallaahu `anhu):
I was menstruating when I reached Mecca. So, I neither performed Tawaf of the Ka’ba, nor the Tawaf between Safa and Marwa. Then I informed Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) about it. He replied, “Perform all the ceremonies of Hajj like the other pilgrims, but do not perform Tawaf of the Ka’ba till you get clean (from your menses).”
Tawaaf around the Ka’bah
It is haraam for a menstruating woman to circumambulate the Ka’bah, whether that is obligatory or naafil, and it is not valid if she does it, because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said to ‘Aa’ishah when she got her menses: “Do everything that the pilgrims do, but do not circumambulate the House until you become pure.”
As for the other actions of Hajj, such as saa’ee between al-Safa and al-Marwah, standing at ‘Arafah, staying overnight in Muzdalifah and Mina, stoning the jamaraat and other rituals of Hajj and ‘Umrah, they are not haraam for her. Based on that, if a female does tawaaf when she is pure, then her period begins immediately after she does tawaaf, or during sa’ee, there is nothing wrong with that.
Tawaaf al-wadaa’ (the farewell tawaaf) is waived in her case
If a female completes the rituals of Hajj and ‘Umrah, then she gets her menses before she goes home and that continues until she leaves, she may depart without doing the farewell tawaaf, because of the hadeeth of Ibn ‘Abbaas (may Allaah be pleased with him) who said: (the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him)) told the people that the last thing they should do was (tawaaf) around the House, but he made an exception for women who were menstruating . Agreed upon.
But the tawaaf that is required for Hajj and ‘Umrah is not waived, and she must do it when she becomes pure.
