Is it permissible for a menstruating woman to attend halaqahs in the Masjid?

Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen (may Allaah have mercy on him) was asked:

Is it permissible for a menstruating woman to attend halaqahs in the Masjid? 

He replied:

  • It is not permissible for a menstruating woman to stay in the Masjid. 
  • As for passing through the Masjid, there is nothing wrong with that, subject to the condition that there is no risk of the mosque being contaminated with the blood that is coming out of her.

If it is not permissible for her to stay in the Masjid, it is not permissible for her to go there to listen to halaqahs and recitation of Qur’aan, unless there is a place outside the Masjid where the sound can reach via loudspeakers, in which case there is nothing wrong with her sitting there to listen to the dhikr.

  • There is nothing wrong with a woman listening to dhikr and recitation of Qur’aan, as it is proven that the Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) used to lay his head in ‘Aa’ishah’s lap and recite Qur’aan when she was menstruating.

But it is not permissible for a menstruating woman to go to the Masjid and stay there to listen to dhikr or Qur’aan recitation.

  • Hence when the Prophet ( Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam ) heard, during the Farewell Pilgrimage, that Safiyyah was menstruating, he said: “Has she detained us?” because he thought that she had not done tawaaf al-ifaadah, but they said that she had already done it.

This indicates that it is not permissible to stay in the Masjid even for acts of worship.

  • And it is proven that the Prophet ( Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam ) told women to go out to the Eid prayer-place to pray and remember Allaah (dhikr), but he told the menstruating women to keep away from the prayer-place itself.

End quote from Fataawa al-Tahaarah, p. 273.

See the views of the fuqaha’ in al-Mabsoot, 3/153; Haashiyat al-Dasooqi, 1/173; al-Majmoo’, 2/388; al-Mughni, 1/195

About `La illaha illa Allah

Pray your Salah and be good to others too, When you remember Allah, He remembers you. Do you know when you hear or recite the Qur'an, Allah is telling you that He is the One.
