Can a woman touch and recite The holy Quran during menses ?



 About this Topic  Many misleading articles appearing on various social media. So when we have got a beautiful question then I will try to discuss clearly about touching and reciting the Quran during menstruation . So take a moment to read this article to the end. Inshallah you will understand correctly.

عَنْ عَلِيٍّ قَالَ کَانَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّی اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ يُقْرِئُنَا الْقُرْآنَ عَلَی کُلِّ حَالٍ مَا لَمْ يَکُنْ جُنُبًا قَالَ أَبُو عِيسَی حَدِيثُ عَلِيٍّ هَذَا حَدِيثٌ حَسَنٌ صَحِيحٌ

Sayyidina Ali (RA) said, “Allah’s Messenger ﷺ made us recite the Quran in every condition except Janabah (Bathing is obligatory).” [Jame-Tirmizi 146]

After reading the hadith, you must have realized that the Holy Qur’an can not be recited in an impure state. so unholy person can’t touch and recite Quran. During periods woman totally unholy for that reason they can’t perform Solah (prayer) and fast and tawaf as well . then how can touch and recite holy Book AL-Qural?

عَنْ ابْنِ عُمَرَ عَنْ النَّبِيِّ صَلَّی اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ لَا تَقْرَأْ الْجُنُبُ وَلَا الْحَائِضُ وَهُوَ قَوْلُ أَکْثَرِ أَهْلِ الْعِلْمِ مِنْ أَصْحَابِ النَّبِيِّ صَلَّی اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ وَالتَّابِعِينَ وَمَنْ بَعْدَهُمْ مِثْلِ سُفْيَانَ الثَّوْرِيِّ وَابْنِ الْمُبَارَکِ وَالشَّافِعِيِّ وَأَحْمَدَ وَإِسْحَقَ قَالُوا لَا تَقْرَأْ الْحَائِضُ وَلَا الْجُنُبُ مِنْ الْقُرْآنِ شَيْئًا إِلَّا طَرَفَ الْآيَةِ وَالْحَرْفَ وَنَحْوَ ذَلِکَ وَرَخَّصُوا لِلْجُنُبِ وَالْحَائِضِ فِي التَّسْبِيحِ وَالتَّهْلِيلِ

Ibn Umar (RA) reported the Prophet ﷺ as saying, “A menstruating woman and a sexually defiled person must not recite from the Quran anything.” [Sunan e Tirmizi 131]

According to companions and Tabeyeen and after them Sufyan sauri and Ibn e Mubarak and Imam Ash-shafi and Imam Ahmad and and Ishaque ,A menstruating Woman and unholy person (Sexually defiled person ) can’t touch and recite Holy Quran. They only can recite memorizing  Quranic Dua ,Dua from Hadith, Tasbeeh and wazifa.

The majority of Fuqhaa ,say that it’s not permissible (Haram) for a woman to read and touch Quraan during her period until she is tahir (pure) again.if want to move Quran for any reason one place to other place then can move with cover.

Then what type of Ibadah (Worship) a woma can do during menstruating ?  Answer of this question is if a woman want to worship at that time then she can worship of Allah like zikir and Tasbeeh and recite dua which she recite as usual. Acording to Hanafi fuqaah a menstruating woman will make wadu for each prayer time and sit in her usual worship’s place and make zikir for the time. 

Dear brothers  and sisters at last i want to say that, some Islamic scholars spread wrong information about some issues. so you justify before believe .
