Please mention the narration regarding Sayyidah ‘Aaishah (radiyallahu ‘anha) having to go back to Tan’im to make ‘Umrah?



This narration is recorded several times in Sahih Bukhari and Sahih Muslim. Hereunder is one such version:

Sayyidah ‘Aaishah (radiyallahu ‘anha) relates, “We went out with Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) for Hajjatul Wada’ [The Farewell Hajj] and made the intention [ihram] for ‘Umrah. Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) then said, ‘Whoever has a sacrificial animal with him should make the intention for Hajj and ‘Umrah and should not come out of ihram until completing both.’ I reached Makkah while I was menstruating and could not make tawaf nor go between Safa and Marwah. I complained regarding this to Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) and he said, ‘Untie your hair, comb it and make the intention [go into ihram] for Hajj and leave the ‘Umrah.’ Sayyidah ‘Aaishah (radiyallahu ‘anha) says, ‘I did that and when we had finished Hajj, Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) sent me with [my brother] ‘Abdur Rahman ibn Abi Bakr (radiyallahu ‘anhuma) to Tan’im. I performed ‘Umrah and he said, ‘This is [to compensate] for the ‘Umrah you missed.'”

(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 1556, Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 1211)


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
