Section : Intermingling of a Leper with Others in Tawaf.

Malik reported from Ibn Abi Mulaikah that ‘Umar bin Al-Khattab saw a woman aMicted with leprosy performing tawaf with others. He said to her, “O maidservant of Allah! Do not harm others. Why do you not stay in your home?” She did so and stayed at her home. Upon the death of ‘Umar, a man visited her and said, “The one who forbade you to circumambulate the Ka’bah has passed away. You may now go and perform tawaf.” She replied, “I shall not obey a person in his life, and disobey him after his death.”
