Menstrual Periods In Quran And Hadiths

The statement of Allah Most High,

"And they ask you about menstruation. Say, 'It is harm, so keep away from wives during menstruation. And do not approach them until they are pure. And when they have purified themselves, then come to them from where Allah has ordained for you. Indeed, Allah loves those who are constantly repentant and loves those who purify themselves.'"

In other words, if a man has sexual relations with a menstruating woman, he is not perceived as unclean only until evening, but for seven days. When seven days pass from the beginning of menstruation, the woman is regarded as clean, and thus sexual contact is permitted.

Aisha ( R.A ) said,

"We set out with the sole intention of performing Hajj and when we reached Sarif, (a place six miles from Mecca) I got my menses. Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) came to me while I was weeping. He said 'What is the matter with you? Have you got your menses?' I replied, 'Yes.' He said, 'This is a thing which Allah has ordained for the daughters of Adam. So do what all the pilgrims do with the exception of the Tawaf (Circumambulation) round the Ka`ba." `Aisha added, "Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) sacrificed cows on behalf of his wives."

Narrated `Aisha:

While in menses, I used to comb the hair of Allah's Messenger (ﷺ)

Narrated `Urwa:

A person asked me, "Can a woman in menses serve me? And can a Junub woman come close to me?" I replied, "All this is easy for me. All of them can serve me, and there is no harm for any other person to do the same. `Aisha told me that she used to comb the hair of Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) while she was in her menses, and he was in I`tikaf (in the mosque). He would bring his head near her in her room and she would comb his hair, while she used to be in her menses."

Narrated `Aisha:

The Prophet (ﷺ) used to lean on my lap and recite Qur'an while I was in menses.

Narrated Um Salama:

While I was laying with the Prophet (ﷺ) under a single woolen sheet, I got the menses. I slipped away and put on the clothes for menses. He said, "Have you got "Nifas" (menses)?" I replied, "Yes." He then called me and made me lie with him under the same sheet.

Narrated `Aisha:

The Prophet (ﷺ) and I used to take a bath from a single pot while we were Junub. During the menses, he used to order me to put on an Izar (dress worn below the waist) and used to fondle me. While in I`tikaf, he used to bring his head near me and I would wash it while I used to be in my periods (menses).

Narrated Maimuna:

Whenever Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) wanted to fondle any of his wives during the periods (menses), he used to ask her to wear an Izar ( a voluminous outer garment of Muslim women that covers the whole body).

Some Hadiths about Menses ( Periods ),

Narrated `Aisha: Fatima bint Abi Hubaish said to Allah's Apostle (ﷺ), " O Allah's Apostle (ﷺ)! I do not become clean (from bleeding). Shall I give up my prayers? "

Allah's Apostle (ﷺ) replied:

" No, because it is from a blood vessel and not the menses. So when the real menses begins give up your prayers and when it (the period) has finished wash the blood off your body (take a bath) and offer your prayers."

Narrated Asma' bint Abi Bakr: A woman asked Allah's Apostle (ﷺ), O Allah's Apostle (ﷺ)! What should we do, if the blood of menses falls on our clothes?

Allah's Apostle (ﷺ) replied,

" If the blood of menses falls on the garment of any one of you, she must take hold of the blood spot, rub it, wash it with water and then pray in (with it)."

Narrated `Aisha: Once one of the wives of the Prophet did I`tikaf along with him and she was getting bleeding in between her periods. She used to see the blood (from her private parts) and she would perhaps put a dish under her for the blood. (The sub-narrator `Ikrima added, `Aisha once saw the liquid of safflower and said, It looks like what so and so used to have. )

Narrated Anas bin Malik: The Prophet said, At every womb, Allah appoints an angel who says, 'O Lord! A drop of semen, O Lord! A clot. O, Lord! A little lump of flesh. Then if Allah wishes (to complete) its creation, the angel asks, (O Lord!) Will it be a male or female, a wretched or a blessed, and how much will his provision be? And what will his age be?' So all that is written while the child is still in the mother's womb.
