Question: (Brother reading the question): From the city of al Uyoon, which country that is in, Allahu knows best1, the questioner says:

 

(We ask that) Allah bless our Sheikh. Is it permissible for a woman who has her menses to make the prostration of shukr( thankfulness) or the prostration of Tilawaa ( the places in the Qur’an that one should make prostration for when one is reading the qur’an) wa jazakumullahu khayran?

 

Answer (Shaikh Ubaid al Jaabiree): Yes, it is permissble for her to do this, and nothing prohibits her from it. She is only prohibited from salah until she is clean ( stops her menses) and then takes a ghusl, and she is also prohibited from fasting.

 

So when she becomes clean, she takes a ghusl, and she fasts and makes up what she missed.

Menstruating Women Touching the Mus-haf and Attending Lessons of Knowledge in the Masjid

Questions answered by Shaikh Muqbil

السؤال الثامن والعشرون : هل يجوز للمرأة الحائض والنفساء أن تمس القرآن ؟ وتقرأ فيه وخاصة في شهر رمضان المبارك الذي يخصصه الناس بختم القرآن ؟

جواب : لا اعلم مانعاً من هذا ، وحديث : (( لا يمس القرآن إلا طاهر )) ، منهم من يقول: إنه مرسل ، وعلى الفرض أنه بمجموع طرقه صالح للحجية فيكون محمولاً على ما قاله الشوكاني في < نيل الأوطار > يقول : لا يمس القرآن إلا طاهر ، أي مسلم ، فلا يمسه الكافر ، لأن النبي صلى الله عليه وعلى آله وسلم نهى أن يُسافر بالقرآن إلى أرض العدو .

أما قوله تعالى :

لا يمسه إلا المطهرون ]

[الواقعة : 79 ]

فالمراد بهم الملائكة كما قال الإمام مالك في < موطئه > وقال : هذه الآية يُفسرها قوله تعالى :

كلا إنها تذكرة * فمن شاء ذكره * في صحف مكرمة * مرفوعةٍ مطهرة * بأيدي سفرة كرامٍ بررة *

[ عبس : 11 ـ 16 ]

أي : الملائكة كما قال ربنا عز وجل :

وما تنزلت به الشياطين * وما ينبغي لهم وما يستطيعون * إنهم عن السمع لمعزولون *

[ الشعراء : 210 ـ 212 ]

28th Question: Is it permissible for the Menstruating or Postpartum woman to touch the Qur’an? And is it permissible for her to read it – especially in the blessed month of Ramadan when people are devoted to finishing the Qur’an?

Answer: I don’t know anything to prevent this. And the hadeeth: ” No one touches the Quran except the pure one” then some (of the Scholars) say it is Mursal (the chain of narration goes back to the Taabi’ not the Sahaabi). If it is assumed that the hadeeth is authentic, then it takes the meaning that (Shaikh) ash-Shawkaanee said about it in “Neelul Awtaar” . He said: ” ‘ No one touches the Qur’an except the pure one’ meaning: The Muslim. The Kaafir doesn’t touch it.” Because the Prophet (sallallahu alayhe wa sallam) prohibited that someone travel with the Qur’an to the land of the enemy. As for Allah, The Most High’s statement (translated):

“None can touch it except for the Purified” (56:79)

Then what is meant by the Purified is ‘the angels’ as Imam Malik said in his Muwatta. And he said: These verses are explained by His, The Most High’s , statement (translated):

“Nay, indeed it is an reminder. So whoever wills, let him remember. (It is ) in Records held (greatly) in honor (al Lauhul Mahfooth). Exalted, purified. In the hands of honorable and obedient scribes. ” (80:11-16)

Meaning (of scribes): The angels…

السؤال التاسع والعشرون : وهل يجوز لها حضور مجالس العلم والدروس في المسجد ؟

جواب : لا بأس إن شاء الله ، وحديث : (( إني لا أحل المسجد لحائض ولا جنب )) هو حديث ضعيف ، والنبي صلى الله عليه وعلى آله وسلم يقول لعائشة : (( إن حيضتك ليست في يدك)) ، ويقول لها أيضاً : (( أفعلي ما يفعل الحاج غير ألا تطوفي في البيت )) . فلا بأس أن تحضر دروس العلم في المسجد .

29th question: And is it permissible for her (Menstruating or Postpartum mentioned in Q 28) to attend the sittings of knowledge and lessons in the Masjid?

Answer: There is no harm (in that) in shaa Allah. And the hadeeth “Indeed I don’t make it permissible for the Menstruating woman or junub to go to the Masjid” – it is a weak hadeeth. And the Prophet (sallallahu alayhe wa alaa aalihi wa sallam) said to Aishah: “Indeed your menses is not in your hands” and he also said to her: “Do everything the Haajjee (person making Hajj) does except for tawaaf (circling) around the House (Ka’bah)”. So there is no harm for her attend lessons of knowledge in the Masjid.

Mensing women reciting from the computer

April 1, 2012

A question asked to Shaikh Abdul Muhsin al Ubaykaan taken from his website.

http://al-obeikan.com/show_fatwa/845.html

السؤال : السلام عليكم ورحمة اللة وبركاته بارك الله فيكم يا فضيلة الشيخ.. سؤالي هو: هل يجوز للحائض أن تقرأ القرآن من على شاشة الكمبيوتر، حيث هناك برامج تعرض نفس شكل المصحف الشريف على شاشةالكمبيوتر وبالتالي ليس هناك مس للمصحف، مما يتيح للحائض أن تقرأ سورة الكهف يوم الجمعة مثلا أو أن تختم القرآن الكريم في شهر رمضان .. أرجو التوضيح، وجزاكم الله خيرا..

الإجابة:

وعليكم السلام ورحمة الله وبركاته . يجوز

The question: (first the questioner gives the Islamic greeting): Peace and the Mercy and Blessings of God be upon you, God bless you O Noble Scholar…My question is: Is it permissible for the mensing woman to read the Qur’an from the computer screen, when there are programs showing the pages of the Noble Mus-haf (the Quran is the actual recitation, the Mus-haf is the book, binding, ink, pages) on the computer screen and additionally there is no touching of the Mus-haf.  For example if the mensing woman recites suratul Kahf (18th chapter) on Friday or she completes (recitation of) the Noble Qur’an in the month of Ramadan…I would like clarification, (I ask that) God reward you with good.

The answer:  (returning the Islamic greeting): And the Peace, Mercy, and Blessings of God be upon you. It is permissible.
