What are the things women cannot do in her menses?
In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.
In the state of menses it is not permissible for a woman to:
1) Touch the Qurān.
2) Recite the Qurān.
3) Enter in the masjid.
4) Perform Tawāf.
5) Offer Salaah.
There is a difference between the touching the Qurān and reciting the Qurān.
Reciting is impermissible as mentioned above. However, touching the Qurān with such a cloth that is not attached to the hand, for example, handkerchief, etc, will be permissible.
