Is the white marble outside the Masjid-ul-Haram part of the Masjid?


Can women in mensuration enter the white marble area on the outside part of masjidul haram? Is that part considered a part of majidul haram.



In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful. 

As-salāmu 'alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

Women may enter the white marble part outside of the Masjid-ul-Haram during their menstruation as it is not part of the Masjid.[1]

عورت ناپاکی کے ایام میں نہ تو مسجد میں داخل ہو نہ طواف کرے اور نہ قرآن کریم پڑھے (البتہ حرم شریف کے باہر جو سفید پتھروں کا صحن ہے اس میں آمد ورفت اور بیٹھنا اس کے لئے جائز ہے کیوں کہ یہ حصہ خارج وسجد ہے
