Safa and Marwa are not part of Masjid-ul-Haram

Q. Can a female attend the Masjid/Haramain on Jumuah during her menses only to listen to the khutbah?

A. It is not permissible for a woman in the state of menstruation (Haidh) to enter any Musjid including Musjid-ul-Haram (Makkah) and Musjid Nabawi (Madinah). However, a woman in the state of menstruation may enter the Safa and Marwa area of Masjid-ul-Haram as it does not form part of the Masjid.

A woman may listen to the khutba through the various platforms provided without going to the Masjid.

Allah Ta’ala Knows Best
