Sex during menstruation
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. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Surah Baqarah verse 222:
222 They ask thee (O Prophet (saws)) concerning women's courses (menstruation). Say: They are a hurt and a pollution; so keep away from women in their courses and do not approach (have sexual intercourse with) them until they are clean. But when they have purified themselves ye may approach them in any manner, time, or place ordained for you by Allah. For Allah loves those who turn to Him constantly and He loves those who keep themselves pure and clean.
Islam has absolutely prohibited the believers from the actual act of sexual intercourse with their wife during her period of menstruation; but if the husband is unaware that the wife is experiencing her menstruation, and the wife intentionally does not inform him regarding her periods.the blame and sin for having conjugal relations during this prohibited period will be borne by the wife alone and the husband will be blameless.
In such a situation, the wife should turn unto her Lord and seek sincere forgiveness for her manifest transgression of one of the prescribed Boundaries of Allah Subhanah.
Although medically the chances are extremely remote for a woman to become pregnant through the intercourse during menstruation.if at all the intercourse during menstruation results in pregnancy, it would hold absolutely no bearing on the legality of the child or the marriage in the least.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
