Chapter No. 26, Pilgrimage (Hajj)
Hadith No: 632
Narrated/Authority of Al-Aswad
Aisha said, We went out with the Prophet (from Medina) with the intention of performing Hajj only and when we reached Makkah we performed Tawaf round the Kaba and then the Prophet ordered those who had not driven the Hadi along with them to finish their Ihram. So the people who had not driven the Hadi along with them finished their Ihram. The Prophet's wives, too, had not driven the Hadi with them, so they too, finished their Ihram." Aisha added, "I got my menses and could not perform Tawaf round the Kaba." So when it was the night of Hasba (i.e. when we stopped at Al-Muhassab), I said, 'O Allah's Apostle! Everyone is returning after performing Hajj and Umrah but I am returning after performing Hajj only.' He said, 'Didn't you perform Tawaf round the Kaba the night we reached Makkah?' I replied in the negative. He said, 'Go with your brother to Tanim and assume the Ihram for Umrah, (and after performing it) come back to such and such a place.' On that Safiya said, 'I feel that I will detain you all.' The Prophet said, 'O Aqra Halqa! Didn't you perform Tawaf of the Kaba on the day of sacrifice? (i.e. Tawaf-al-ifada) Safiya replied in the affirmative. He said, (to Safiya). 'There is no harm for you to proceed on with us.' " 'Aisha added, "(after returning from Umrah), the Prophet met me while he was ascending (from Mecca) and I was descending to it, or I was ascending and he was descending."
