What If My Period Began Right After Intercourse?

After marital relations (sexual intercourse) you are in a state of ritual impurity (called Janabah where recitation of Qur’an is not allowed) which is different from the state of menstruation (haidh). During menstruation even though there is a difference of opinion you are allowed to recite Qur’an without touching it physically. Some scholars even encourage it.

A ritual bath (ghusl) is not necessary right away in the case that a lady’s menstrual period begins immediately after sexual intercourse. It must be noted that during her menses, the husband is not allowed to have intercourse in the vagina. Almighty Allah says:

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. (Al-Baqarah 2:222)

What Is the Importance of Ablution?

What Is the Importance of Ablution?

Islam requires both physical and spiritual cleanliness. On the physical side, a true Muslims should clean his/her body, clothes, home, community, and he/she is rewarded by Allah for doing so. This cleansing was practiced in Christianity as well, and was mentioned in the Bible.

Regarding the acts of worship such as prayer, all Muslims are required to make the ritual cleansing (wudu’) before standing and offering prayer before the Almighty Allah.

Here, Sheikh Bilal Philips talks about the importance of ablution during a session that was organized by Qatar Islamic Cultural Center (FANAR). He begins his talk by reminding the audience with faith and how the Muslim can maintain the relationship with Allah and His beloved Messenger (peace be upon him).

Then he starts talking about the key of prayer and one of its principles that is ablution. The Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “There is no prayer for one who does not have ablution, and there is no ablution for one who does not mention the Name of Allah (before it).” (Ibn Majah and Abu Dawud)

Removing Impurities By Dry Cleaning

Removing Impurities By Dry Cleaning

Removing Impurities By Dry Cleaning

Islam gives a great importance to the cleanliness and purity of one’s clothes. Almighty Allah says: 

“And your clothing purify”. (Al-Muddaththir 74:4) 

Removing Impurities By Dry Cleaning

“And your clothing purify”. (Al-Muddaththir 74:4)

It is well-known that Impurities on clothes can be removed by washing by hand or washing machines; they can also be cleaned by dry-cleaning machines.

Most of the contemporary jurists are of the view that it is a fundamental condition to remove najasah (impurity or unclean substances) with water. It is the same ruling as purification from both minor and major hadath (performing ablution or ritual bath) that can be done with water.

Imam An-Nawawi (may Allah have mercy on him) said in Majmu` Al-Fatawa, “Purifying oneself from the hadath (both minor and major) and removing impurities can only be done by using clean and pure water. He also added, ‘This is the view of our school of Fiqh (Ash-Shafi`iah) and and the majority of the Salaf (rightly guided successors) and those who came after them.” 

However, Imam Abu Hanifah sees that it is allowed to purify impurities with pure liquids that could remove it. Sheikh Ibn Taiymiyah also had the same opinion.

When Sheikh Ibn `Uthaimeen was asked about such ruling, he said, “Removing impurities is not an act of worship, rather the purpose of removing impurity is to remove the uncleaned substances, so whatever remove the impurity and its traces, then It is purifier, regardless it is done with water or anything else. Indeed, according to the more correct view which was favored by Sheikh Ibn Taiymiyah, if it is removed by means of sunlight and wind, then the place is purified, because it is as I said: the issue here is the impure substance, and wherever the impure substance is found, that place is regarded as impure, and when it is removed the place goes back to its original state.”

At the end, there seems to be nothing contrary to remove impurities and uncleaned substances on clothes by dry cleaning.

Rulings of Istihadah

Rulings of Istihadah

Istihadah is totally different from Hayd (menstrual period) in its rulings. Istihadah does not prevent a woman from offering the acts of worship. 

Istihadah (irregular bleeding) is the vaginal bleeding of a woman. It could be continuous or it may remain for a short period of time. 

It was narrated from Fatimah bint Abi Hubaish that she suffered from Istihadah. The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said to her: “If it is menstrual blood, then it is blood that is black and recognizable, so stop praying, and if it is other than that then perform Wudu’ (ablution), for it is just a (bleeding) vein.” (An-Nasa’i

Does Hayd prevent a woman from offering the acts of worship? Does istihadah prevent a woman from making `Umrah? How could a woman who suffer from irregular bleeding offer Prayer and Fasting? 

Find the answers and more about the rulings of Istihadah on this short talk with Dr. Muhammad Salah.
