Dear Brothers & Sisters,As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
Praying during menstruation is impure,, but what if the periods lasts more than the normal days, (5-7 days). My question is whether we wait until it stops and then pray or can we pray, even though the periods last way longer?
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)
A women's menstrual cycle is subject to variations, such as being longer or shorter or discontinuous or delayed or coming earlier as a result of many biological and psychological factors.
Therefore, the woman is not allowed to perform prayer, have intercourse with her husband, etc., until she becomes totally clean , even if her period is longer than usual, unless it exceeds 15 days.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
