Is it permitted in Islam for women to use pills during Ramadan to delay her menstruation period? I don’t want to miss laylatul Qadr night in Ramadhan when I have my menses.
In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.
It is permissible to take pills to supress and delay menses. However, it is discouraged to do so. A woman in menses is not deprived of laylatul Qadr. Such a woman may make Dhikr and Dua. She will get the benefits and rewards of worshipping Allah in laylatul Qadr.
And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
