Can a Menstruating Woman Enter the Masjid?
Is it permissible for a menstruating woman to enter the masjid?
Almighty Allah says:
“O you who have believed, do not approach prayer while you are intoxicated until you know what you are saying or in a state of janabah, except those passing through [a place of prayer], until you have washed [your whole body].” (An-Nisa’ 4:43)
The general rule is, when a Muslim woman is on her monthly period, she should not visit the Musallah area. Meaning she should not go where the prayers are offered.
The masajid of today are vast and different. They have various areas apart from the main Musallah area where women can sit and benefit.
Watch this short talk to get more details about such ruling with Sheikh Navaid Aziz.
