Ruling on Reading the Quran....




Question
What is the ruling on reciting the Quran (which entails physically touching a printed copy (Mus’haf)) during menstruation or past-partum bleeding in cases of necessity when a woman is a student or a teacher?

Answer
All perfect praise be to Allaah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and that Muhammad, sallallaahu 'alyhi wa sallam, is His slave and Messenger.

Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen  said: "There is no harm in reciting the Quran for the woman who is in menstruation or post-partum bleeding if there is a need for this such as being a teacher or a student who is memorizing the Quran. However, reciting Quran (by touching the Mus’haf) merely for the sake of reward should not be done by a woman who is in menstruation or post-partum bleeding. This is because many scholars, most of them in fact, believe that it is impermissible for a woman who is menstruating to recite the Quran from a printed copy (Mus’haf) if it entails touching it."

Allaah Knows best.
