Should a woman trot in tawaaf or between the two green markers in saa’i between al-Safa and al-Marwah, as men do?.
Praise be to Allaah.
Ibn al-Mundhir said: The scholars are unanimously agreed that
women do not have to trot around the Ka’bah or between al-Safa and
al-Marwah, and they do not have to uncover one shoulder, because the purpose
behind these two actions is to show strength, and women are not included in
that because the basic principle for women is to conceal themselves, but in
trotting and baring one shoulder they would be uncovering themselves. End
And Allaah is the Source of strength. May Allaah send
blessings and peace upon our Prophet Muhammad and his family and companions.
