Sorry if this has been asked before. My question is for the ladies and please try to be considerate of my situation while replying. I’m leaving for Iraq Ziaarat with a group in a week from United States. My trip was planned just a couple of weeks ago and I was suppose to get done with my period well before the start of my trip (Hence, I didn’t take any pills to stop/delay my period). Unfortunately, my period is delayed and now it’s just 3 days before we leave for Iraq IA! There’s nothing that I can do at this time, so Im reaching out to find out what are my options in terms of visiting the shrines/Haram of the Imams while I’m in Iraq ( in case I get my period there). I’ve searched online and couldn’t find any answers. I know that a woman can’t enter a mosque or pray during her period but could you please tell me what limitations do I have have while visiting all the Holy places in Iraq? This includes Imam Ali’s house, Haram/shrine of Imam Ali, Imam Hussain, Hazrat Abbas, Imam Musa, Tilla e Zainab? Can I go in and sit in the courtyards without touching the tombs? Can I enter Masjid e Qufa? 

Please let me know, it would really mean a lot to me.

Thahk you,

I am confused, are you leaving in one week or 3 days? If your period hasn't started yet, you can try drinking lots of orange juice and eating 2 or 3 eggs. Your period will start early. There are many home remedies available to start period early. It will take you at least 24 hours to reach there, so if your period starts 2 or 3 days before you leave, you will only need to take precautions for 1 or 2 days. I have heard that you are allowed to go to Haram, you should not go close to zareeh and not touch the zareeh.
