Can the Menstruating Women Touch the Mushaf ?


Question asked to Imaam Muqbil (may Allaah have mercy upon him)


Q. Is it ok for the menstruating woman to touch the Mushaf/Qur’aan?

A. There is no harm in that, due to there being no evidence to prohibit that. As for the Hadeeth

 

“None should touch the Qur’aan except for the one who is pure”
(Haakim, Bayhaqi, Authenticated by al-Albaani by way of its combined routes)
Imaam Ash-Shawkaani (may Allaah have mercy upon him) said concerning this:
“That which is intended by – None should touch the Qur’aan except for the one who is pure – means the believer. The evidence is that the Prophet (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) said:
“Indeed the believer doesn’t become impure”
(Bukhaari and Muslim)
Also the Prophet (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam):
“Prohibited traveling to the lands of the enemy with the Qur’aan”
(Bukhaari and Muslim)
