Tampon in ihram

Fatwaa ID: 888

Assalamualykum mufti saab. Can married ladies use tampons to prevent the flow of white discharge during tawaf in ihram? Tampons are not fully inserted. The thread is out of vagina.

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

A woman will be excused to use tampons during tawaaf, in ihraam as well as out of ihraam, to prevent the flow of discharge. However, if there are alternative methods to prevent or reduce it, then one should opt for that instead.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
