Q: I intended to go this year to perform Hajj duty and I am suffering from continuous bleeding during my menstruation period. I am fifty five years old. Is it permissible for me to perform tawaf in the eighth day instead of the twelfth day, knowing that it is the third time I perform hajj and not the first? 

 A: The blood that you see is rendered Istihadah blood and it does not prevent you from performing tawaf (circumambulation) at any time you want on condition that you observe the rulings concerning the type of Istihadhah you are having. It is also permissible for you to perform Sa'y and Tawaf before standing in Arafah if necessary even if it is the first time to perform Hajj, but in your case it does not seem to be necessary.
