Salam Alaykum,
Is it permissible for a Woman to have an injection for the purpose of delaying mensturation to enable her go through ibadah like Hajj or Umrah?


Wa ʿAlaykumus Salām Wa Raḥmatullāhi Wa Barakātuh

In principle, a woman should not tamper with and alter the natural state of her body as created by Allāh ﷻ.

Generally, a woman would know her monthly cycle and may then make use of calculations to determine a suitable date to perform ʿUmrah.

The use of such injections would, however, be permitted under unavoidable circumstances such as in the case of Ḥajj wherein a woman would be unable to perform the obligatory Ṭawāf (al-Ziyārah) before her departure date from Makkah.

This is also provided that it is done under the medical guidance of one’s doctor and is not proven harmful to the body.
