Salam alaikum. I finished my nifaas 2days before and travelled to makkah for umrah. i have performed tawaf and then sa'ee . but after saee i checked myself and i had some yellow discharge which is istihadah . The problem is i dont know for sure when the discharge came:during tawaf or after?. In my opinion it came during sa'ee but there is no way to be 100%sure. What is the ruling about validity of my umrah?
Assalam u Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah,
Purity from (Hadath) is not required to observe Sa'ee. If Sa'ee was performed without Wudhu then the Sa'ee will stand valid.
Therefore, as long as you are certain that your Wudhu was intact while you were performing Tawaf then your Umrah stands valid. Sa'ee is considered valid even if you lost your Wudhu due to bleeding or another reason.
If you are not sure about maintaining state of purity while you were performing Tawaf then you would have to perform Tawaf and Sa'ee again.
And Allah knows best.
