Menses and Ihram

Q: I am intending to preform hajj tammatu. We are flying out on the 23rd August. The issue is I will be on my 5th day of menses and won’t attain purity until the 28th of August. Would I make intention for ihram and be in the state of ihram and how would I proceed after attaining purity?

A: You will make intention for Umrah and be in Ihraam before entering Makkah. When attaining purity you will take a bath and perform the Umrah. Remember that you will be in the state of Ihraam when entering Makkah and will remain in Ihraam till the completion of the Umrah.
