Hajj - Use of Contraceptives
  • Question:

    For women if our menses falls during Hajj or last ten days of Ramadan, is it okay to use contraceptives to delay our cycle so we can pray and fast on those days?


    Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh

    Thank you for your question.

    In such situations, it is advisable to consult medical experts. If they assure you that there would be no adverse side effects due to artificially delaying the menstruation, then it would be permissible otherwise not.

    And Allah knows best.
