Masjid boundary in Madinah Munawwarah and Musjid Al Aqsa

Q: A woman cannot enter a masjid in the state of haiz. What is regarded as the masjid in Madinah and Al Aqsa? Is it only the building or till the gates of the masjid boundary?

A: What we understand to be the musjid is the built up area where people normally perform namaaz.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
