Sahih Bukhari – Volume 1 – Book 6 – P.206

(294) Narrated Al-Qasim: ‘Aishah said, “We set out with the sole intention of performing Hajj and when we reached Sarif, (a place 11 k.m. from Makkah) I got my menses. Allah’s messenger, peace be upon him, came to me while I was weeping.  He said, “What is the matter with you? Have you got your menses?” I replied, “Yes.” He said, “This is a thing which Allah has ordained for the daughters of Adam.  So do what all the pilgrims do with the exception of Tawaf (circumam-bulation) round the Ka’bah.” ‘Aishah added, “Allah’s Messenger, peace be upon him, sacrificed cows on behalf of his wives.”
