Hajj, Monthly Cycle in Women


Asalaamu aleikum Dearest Mashaykh and Respected Scholars,

We are a group of women intending to go to Hajj this year and our question is; Is it permissible to take medication/drug to stop our monthly cycles for the duration of the Hajj so that we may have the advantage of not missing out in any prayers in the Great Mosques in Makkah and Medina?

Thank you for your kind patience.
Asalaamu aliekum.


wa `alaykum salam,
