Fatwas on Wet dream during Haj / Menses while in Ihram / Changing garments of Ihram

Wet dream during Haj

Q- I performed the obligation of Haj and during one night while I was in Mina, I had a wet dream and I was not able to bath. Is there any sin on me?

A – Having a wet dream while in the state of Ihram during Haj or Umrah does not affect the Haj or Umrah, so they are not invalidated. Whoever experiences this should make the Ghusl for the Janabah after waking up if he saw semen or its traces. There is no expiation upon him because having the wet dream was not his choice.

– Permanent Committee for Islamic Research and Verdicts; Fatawa Islamiyah, vol. 4, pg. no.150

Menses while in Ihram

Q- If a woman gets her menses or has postnatal bleeding after assuming her Ihram is it correct for her to make Tawaf around the House (the Ka’bah)? What should she do? Does she have to perform the Farewell Tawaf (Tawaful-Wada)?

A – If she has postnatal bleeding or gets her menses when she arrives for Umrah, she refrains from that (Tawaf) until she performs Ghusl. Then when she cleaness herself, she performs Tawaf and Sa’i, cuts her hair and completes her Umrah. If this occurred after the Umrah or after she assumed Ihram for Haj on 8th day (of Dhul-Hijjah), then she does the acts of Haj, such as standing at Arafat, staying in Muzdalifah, stoning the pillars and other things as well, such as saying the Talbiyyah and doing Dhikr of Allah.

Then, when she becomes physically clean, she performs Tawaf and Sa’i for Haj. If she gets her menses after the Tawaf and the Sa’i, and before the Farewell Tawaf, she is not required to perform the Farewell Tawaf, because it is not obligatory for the menstruating woman and the woman with postnatal bleeding to perform the Farewell Tawaf.

– Sheikh Abdul Aziz Bin Baz; Fatawa Islamiyah, vol. 4, pg. no. 153

Changing garments of Ihram

Q- Is it permissible to change the garments of Ihram in order to wash them?

A – There is no harm in washing the Ihram garments and there is no harm in changing them and using other Ihram garments that are new or washed.

– Sheikh Abdul Aziz Bin Baz; Fatawa Islamiyah, vol. 4, pg. no. 128
