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.

1It is in Western Sahara which is claimed by Morocco.  Shaikh Ubaid al Jaabiree knew where it was located (you can hear him tell the brother reading the question in the audio at the link on miraath.net ).
