Is it permissible to take a pill to stop menstruation whilst in Hajj?


I am going for Hajj insha’Allah.  According to my dates, I will be on my periods during the Hajj days.  Can I use the pill to stop my periods coming? 


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

From a fatwa perspective, it is permissible to take a pill which stops one’s menses.  From a medical perspective, one should  consult her doctor before taking these pills to see if there are any potential harms.[1]

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best

Mufti Faraz ibn Adam al-Mahmudi,
