The rule of prayer for women menses is haraam,and not permissible a prayer or fasting or Tawaaf around the House and touch Holy Quran ... حَدَّثَنَا ابْنُ أَبِي مَرْيَمَ، حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ جَعْفَرٍ، قَالَ حَدَّثَنِي زَيْدٌ، عَنْ عِيَاضٍ، عَنْ أَبِي سَعِيدٍ ـ رضى الله عنه ـ قَالَ قَالَ النَّبِيُّ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏"‏ أَلَيْسَ إِذَا حَاضَتْ ...

The woman should break the fast and make all the missed ones up after Ramadhan :) Muâdhah, the daughter ofAbd Allah al-Adwiyyah, askedAisha: "Why do we make up our fasts but not our prayers? `Aisha answered: "When we were beset with menstruation, we were commanded to to make up our fasts but not our prayers." This is an authentic hadîth ...

A hadith in Sahih Bukhari is not going to flatly contradict the Qur'an (in this case Qur'an 2:222 ...keep away from wives during menstruation...): the narrators of these ahadith and the author Muhammad al-Bukhari were devout Muslims who were aware of the contents of the Qur'an. (Instead the Book of Menstrual Periods gives several ahadith which describe ...

Note: This is a highly controversial topic and hence needs to be dealt carefully. First lets answer the easy part. Can she touch the mushaf while she is in that state and even recite from it? Many scholars unambiguously come to the point based on a hadith which talks about a letter written by Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) stating. No one should touch ...

Now that you cleared your question, as menopause isn't a reason to stop having intercourse. While menstruation indeed is a reason, as stated in the comment of brother Zia, but that doesn't mean that you must avoid having any sexual pleasure or tension. In the following I'm assuming that you are not considering a second (etc.) marriage and just look for legal ...

I was given advice by my friend to divorce my wife and he was not clear to me or explained me the procedure and I was angry and in doubt about doing it but he and my brother pushed me. First of all, you should never take such a major decision as divorce when angry. In Islam, divorce is highly discouraged, but the provision is there in order to maintain ...

Hadith from Sahih Muslim Mu'adha said: I asked 'A'isha: What is the reason that a menstruating woman completes the fasts (that she abandons during her monthly course). but she does not complete the prayers? She (Hadrat 'A'isha) said: Are you a Haruriya? I said: I am not a Haruriya, but I simply want to inquire. She said: We passed through this (period of ...

Even if she doesn't stay up during the Qadr nights and doesn't worship at all, still she can hope to gain the mercy of Allah, let alone with all that worship: قَالَ وَمَن يَقْنَطُ مِن رَّحْمَةِ رَبِّهِ إِلَّا الضَّالُّونَ He said, "And who despairs of the mercy of his Lord except for those astray?" [Al-Hijr: 56] Also note that menstruation is ...

AFAIK a muslim (man and woman) is allowed to recite Quran from memory - independent of the state he is in... although there are some opinions stating that if men are in the state of janaabah they need to first make ghusl. Regarding "women during period" reading it from a screen/mobile etc. there seems to be no "100% consensus"... some say you are allowed, ...

Menses entails ritual impurity similar to defecation, urination and ejaculation. It does not however make a woman inherently unclean or untouchable, similar to how urination does not make someone inherently unclean or untouchable. Ablution and Bath(Ghusl) removes ritual impurity. Men and women don't shake hands because its disliked to touch someone from ...

In addition to Rebecca's good answer I'd like to say that the hadith shows a couple of things: The Prophet () was not knowing that Safiya had her menses, nor when it started. The point of this hadith (and this gets clearer when we consider reading it with the other narrations quoted and linked by Rebecca in her answer) is that the Prophet () and all people ...

No it isn't and it is rather a sinful act unless you see no blood, but a "white discharge". Read for example: "Women used to send little boxes to A'isha, umm al-muminin, with a piece of cotton cloth in each one on which was yellowness from menstrual blood, asking her about the prayer. She said to them, 'Do not be hasty until you see a white discharge." By ...

According to the fatwa team at Islamweb.net, this blood is considered by Imam Malik to be a period. Therefore you mustn't pray or touch the Mushaf or anything until you get tuhur. Other scholars only consider it a period if it lasts for more than a day and night, otherwise it is not. If you know Arabic, you can read the following fatawa (both from ...

No, it is not OK and even haraam to worship during menses. There are about 20 ruling regarding menses, some of the important one are below 1. Praying is haraam and waived. That includes both obligatory and nawafil. If a woman does it, they are not valid. She is not required to make up these prayers. 2. Fasting is haraam that is both obligatory and nawafil. ...

i think probably it is ok to make several days of additional fasting. there is hadith about fasting for unmarried young people. you can see hadithes at https://sunnah.com/search/?q=marry+fast . for example one of the hadithes: Sahih al-Bukhari 5066: Narrated `Abdullah: We were with the Prophet (ﷺ) while we were young and had no wealth whatever. So Allah's ...

Allah (subhanuhu wa ta’ala—may He be Glorified and Exalted) says in surat al-Baqara, ayah 222, “They ask you concerning menstruation. Say that it is an adha (a harmful thing), therefore keep away from [your wives] during menses and do not have sexual intercourse with them until they have become pure [from menstrual blood], and when they have purified ...

Adding to Faqirah's answer, here's a hadith from Sahih al-Bukhari, Book of Menstrual Periods: Narrated `Aisha: Fatima bint Abi Hubaish said to Allah's Messenger (ﷺ), "O Allah's Messenger (ﷺ)! I do not become clean (from bleeding). Shall I give up my prayers?" Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) replied: "No, because it is from a blood vessel and not the menses. So when ...

All Praise to Allah Subhanahu wa Taala and blessings on Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him His family and companions Narrated Fatimah daughter of AbuHubaysh: Urwah ibn az-Zubayr reported from Fatimah daughter of AbuHubaysh that her blood kept flowing, so the Prophet (ﷺ) said to her: When the blood of the menses comes, it is black blood which can be ...

The way the hadith explains it is already rather clear, but I'll spell it out because I'm sick of seeing it quoted by anti-Islam sites who insist on twisting words from their right places: Praying, fasting and giving charity are all part of the religion. Women don't pray and fast during their menses. Therefore there is a shortage in their religion. Giving ...

Sahih Muslim contains the hadith 'A'isha reported: A woman asked the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) how to wash herself after menstruation. She mentioned that he taught her how to take bath and then told her to take a piece of cotton with musk and purify herself. She said: How should I purify myself with that? He (the Holy Prophet) said: Praise be to Allah, ...

I am not aware of any reports that women in the time of the Prophet used to 'fake' prayers. If they didn't do this then one should ask themselves whether they consider themselves to have more haya than the Mothers of the Believers and the Sahabiyas? Secondly some schools derive that physical actions such as sajdah are part of prayer and shouldn't be done in ...

We find in the sunnah: He who finds a rak'ah of the prayer, he in fact finds the prayer. (In Sahih al-Bukhari and Sahih Muslim and elsewhere) This is the criterion and basis on which we can decide whether or not we have prayed on time. This is also the basis that decides whether or not we have prayed in a congregation as one variations of the hadith ...

There is no overall benefit in anything that is haram. Avoid anything that is not permissible: ذَٰلِكَ وَمَن يُعَظِّمْ حُرُمَاتِ اللَّهِ فَهُوَ خَيْرٌ لَّهُ عِندَ رَبِّهِ ۗ وَأُحِلَّتْ لَكُمُ الْأَنْعَامُ إِلَّا مَا يُتْلَىٰ عَلَيْكُمْ ۖ فَاجْتَنِبُوا الرِّجْسَ مِنَ الْأَوْثَانِ وَاجْتَنِبُوا قَوْلَ الزُّورِ That [has been commanded], and whoever ...

From an Islamic jurisprudence point of view, after an abortion, the type of blood observed will depend on the age and stage the fetus is in at the time of abortion: First 80 days: Human-like features are not yet developed. The blood observed is considered istiḣāda (vaginal, non-menstrual) blood. Between 80 days and 120 days: The soul is not yet breathed ...

There's a bunch of ahadith that restrict the usage of perfumes. Relevant to women are notably: It was narrated that Al-Ash'ari said: "The Messenger of Allah [SAW] said: 'Any woman who puts on perfume then passes by people so that they can smell her fragrance then she is an adulteress.'" -- Sunan an-Nasa'i 5126 [grade: hasan] (sunnah.com) It was ...
