What can we recite during periods? What can and cannot be done during the period? In particular, the Qur’an can be read or not? Lots of people are interested in knowing the answer to this question.
In this blog, we are trying to discuss the answers to some questions about the period. Especially – what can we recite during periods?
But what is the period before that? And why is that? I will briefly discuss the answers to these two questions.
What is the period?
The period is called in Arabic – (الحيض) Which literally means – emission and flow of an object.
And in Islamic terminology, the period is the blood that comes out of a woman’s genitals at a certain time without any external cause.
The period is normal blood. It has nothing to do with illness, injury, falling, and labor pains.
Period blood varies due to the condition of the woman and the environment and eating habits and this is why there are many differences between women in terms of menstruation.
This bleeding usually occurs when you are nine years old or a little older. If this blood appears before nine years, it will be considered as the effect of any disease.
Why is the period?
Many people ask, why do girls have periods? Why did Allah Tayala give this disease to girls?
Women have a layer on the inner wall of the uterus. At that level, the embryo is attached. This level falls once a month. At that time it goes out with some blood, this is the period.
This layer accepts healthy vigorous embryos. Protects us from having a defective baby by removing the deformed fetus through menstruation.
Allah Ta’ala has given this level of function to the uterus of women with sufficient efficiency. It can make a decision by checking the health of the fetus. Keep it. No-what will get out?
What can we recite during periods?
There is disagreement among the Imams as to whether the Holy Quran can be recited during periods.
Maliki jurists believe that it is permissible to recite the Holy Qur’an during the period. However, the condition is that the Mashaf of the Qur’an cannot be touched.
According to another group of jurists, If there is a danger of forgetting as a result of dhikr and doa or teaching or not teaching others, then one can recite the Qur’an in these three conditions.
Reference for their opinion – Recite during periods
The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:
‘Menstruating women and impure people will not be able to read any of the Qur’an. (Tirmidhi Sharif)
But another group of Muhaqqiq scholars is of the opinion that there is no difficulty in reciting the Holy Quran during the period.
The above hadith has been mentioned by Keram in Muhaddisinin as a weak hadith. Moreover, Period is compared to Junubi person.
But this comparison is not correct. Because the impurity of a Junbi person lasts for a short time. When he takes a bath, he becomes pure. But the period lasts for a long time.
Similarly, it is permissible to recite the Qur’an during the period. There is no evidence in the Holy Qur’an or in the Sunnah of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) that it is not lawful for a menstruating woman to listen to the Qur’an.
If you want to read Quran by looking at your mobile during the period, the set is also valid. There is no problem with this. Because the Qur’an that we see on mobile is not Masha.
You can recite the Qur’an by touching the Mashaf using any cover on your hand. Such as hand socks or gloves etc. This is the opinion of a number of scholars.
If the verses of the Qur’an are written in the book of Tafsir, the book of Fiqh, or any other book, they can also be read.
Because at that time the verses will be included in that book. Of course, the words and sentences in that book should be more than the verses.
What can we do during periods?
- Prayers cannot be offered.
- Fasting is not valid.
- Husband cannot have intercourse.
- Hajj is not valid.
- Cannot recite Quran directly.
- Can’t go to the mosque
Prayers missed during menstruation are completely forgiven. You don’t have to work later. But the fast is temporarily omitted and then the fast has to be performed.
Besides, the prayers of the time have not been performed yet, but there is still time for the prayers to be performed.
Anything that can be done
- Be able to recite tasbih.
- Zikir can be done.
- Recitation of the Qur’an without touch is valid.
- All forms of sexual intercourse are legal except for sexual intercourse.
- Can teach Quran.
- Can hear the recitation.
If you take tablets and stop the period fast, it will become fast. If menstruation is stopped by tablets, she can also have intercourse with her husband.
However, against the normal condition of girls, this rule can cause complex damage to the body. So it is better not to take tablets. Instead, let the discharge continue and then break the fast. This will not reduce the reward of Ramadan fasting.
