Can a woman read/touch the Quran or do Dhikr during her menses?

women read quran during menses

Question

When women go through their days of the monthly period , can they touch or read books on hadith for ex: books on autobiographies of our holy prophet? Can they do zikr  during this time or recite durood and can they apply mehendi on their hands or hair  since mehendi is considered to be clean. Also can women apply mehendi on their feet even if they are in a clean condition since our Rasul Sallallāhu Alayhi Wasallam used to apply mehendi on his beard ?

Answer

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

 

1.It is permissible for a woman to read or touch any other book except the Holy Quran during her menses.[1] It is permissible for her to read or touch the books of Hadith and autobiographies.

However, in these books, wherever there is a verse of the Quran, it will be impermissible for her to touch that area.[2]

2.A woman is permitted to do zikr and recite Durood in the state of impurity.[3]

3.It is permissible for a woman to apply mehndi on her hands, hair and feet in the state of purity and impurity.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
