Sujud At-Tilawah (Prostration of Recitation) During Menses: Permissible?

Sujud At-Tilawah During Menses


Is it permissible for a woman during her menstruation (haid) to perform Sujud At-Tilawah (Prostration of Recitation)?


In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright.

When a woman is allowed to recite the Qur’an, she is permitted to do the Sujud At-Tilawah (Prostration of Recitation), whether she listens to it or recites it.  The most correct view is that it is permissible for a woman to recite from memory, but not from the Mushaf (hard copy of the Qur’an), and she is permitted to prostrate, because it is not a Salah (prayer), but a way of showing submissiveness to Allah and an act of worship.

It is not conditional for a person to be in a state of taharah (ritual purification) to perform Sujud At-Tilawah or Sujud AshShukr (Prostration of Thankfulness), because they do not have the same ruling of Salah.
