AssalamuAlaykum, InshaAllah you are well.
I was wondering what the ruling of entering the Dome of the Rock building would be considering that it was originally meant to be a ‘shrine’ rather than a masjid?
Your answer would be very much appreciated as my period just started and I just arrived in Jerusalem and will be leaving in a couple of days InshaAllah.
In the name of Allah, the Inspirer of truth
A menstruating woman or one who is experiencing postnatal bleeding or a person in a seminally defiled state is prohibited from entering into a “masjid”. The Prophet (upon him be peace) said, “I do not make the masjid lawful for the menstruating women or the one experiencing postnatal bleeding (Abū Dāwād, Ibn Māja, Tabarānī, Zayla‘ī has considered it sound [hasan] 1:193-194).”
The Dome of the Rock is considered a masjid.
And Allah knows best.
