Is it permitted for a woman to take the pill during Ramadhan to delay her menses?


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

Mufti Ebrahim Desai.
