  5. The eminent Sahābi, 'Abdullah ibn Mas'ūd (رضي الله عنه) was asked: "Teach me some words that are concise and full of benefit." So he replied: لا تشرك بالله شيئاً، وزل مع القرآن حيث زال، ومن جاءك بالحق فاقبل منه وإن كان بعيداً بغيضاً، ومن جاءك بالباطل فرده عليه وإن كان قريباً حبيباً "Do not associate anything with Allāh, and be with the Qur'ān wherever it takes you. Whoever comes with the truth, accept it from him even if he was distant and hated by you. And whoever comes with falsehood, then reject it even if he was close and beloved to you.." ~ صفة الصفوة

  8. A Bargain for Barakah There was once a man who had four sons. When he fell ill (and was nearing his end), one of his sons (was so eager to serve him and enjoy the exclusive privilege of caring for him, that he) told the other three sons, “Either you nurse him in his sickness and forfeit your shares of his estate; or I will nurse him and forfeit my share of the estate.” His brothers were pleased with his proposition and left him to nurse their father on his own. When the father eventually passed away, then as agreed, the son who nursed him did not take any share from the estate. Therea

  10. Is it permissible for the divorced parties to demand any gifts given? Q. In many families, when a divorce takes place, especially, a divorce of a newly wedded couple, the parties demand the return of the gifts given after the Nikah. Is this acceptable? (Question published as received) A) Any gift/s exchanged between the husband and wife or between the husband or wife’s family before or after the Nikah, belongs to the parties who have taken ownership of the gift/s. It is impermissible for any of the parties to demand the return of the gifted item/s, wheth
  11. Misconceptions In today’s technologically advanced world, we see non-authoritative sources spreading Islamic legal verdicts (fatwas) for the general public who are none the wiser. With one ‘ping,’ misinformation can spread like wildfire and potentially mislead thousands of people. Listed below are common misconceptions regarding menstruation, followed by what Islam actually says about the matter. Misconception 1: It is not permissible to trim/cut hair or nails while menstruating. Busted: Whilst it is somewhat disliked (makruh tanzihi) to cut hair or nails in a
  12. Attaining Ritual Purity A woman can experience fluctuations in her bleeding and purity. As long as the bleeding is between 3-10 days and follows a purity of at least 15 days, the bleeding will be menstruation (hayd). To attain purity after hayd, she will always be obligated to take a ritual bath (ghusl). In situations of irregular bleeding (istihada), such as bleeding less than 72 hours or exceeds 240 hours, she is only required to perform ablution (wudu) to attain ritual purity as this bleeding is not hayd (Manhal al-Waridin p.206). It’s important that she track each instance of blee
  13. Menopause Menopause is a time of great change in a woman’s life. Unlike puberty, it isn’t openly discussed nor are women educated about what changes to expect. When it starts, anywhere from 45-55 years of age, and lasting between 5-7 years, women are often caught off guard. After going through menopause, many women feel relieved that they don’t have to worry about tracking their menstrual cycle or having a gap in their ritual worship. Biologically, menopause is when a woman’s menstrual cycle ends, and she can no longer conceive. The ovaries stop producing estrogen and progesterone and
  14. Miscarriage Even though miscarriages are a fairly common experience, it is completely natural to feel a sense of loss. Some miscarriages take place before a woman even knows she’s pregnant, while others take place in later trimesters. Some of the most common signs of a miscarriage are abdominal cramping, back pain, and vaginal bleeding. Women also notice a discernible decrease in pregnancy symptoms due to hormonal changes, such as breast tenderness, nausea, and sensitivity to smell. From a spiritual perspective, a miscarriage can feel like a devastating loss, but it is important to be
  15. Post-Natal Bleeding (Nifas) From the beginning of her pregnancy, a woman wonders what her labour and delivery will feel like. She learns the signs to active labour, such as the baby dropping, the dilation of the cervix and her water breaking. Contractions, which can feel like waves of intense pressure, will increase in frequency and intensity. As a woman goes through this experience, she also has to know what is expected of her in regards to her ritual prayer (salat). It is important to remember that whatever exits from the vagina during pregnancy is considered an impurity (najasah),
  16. Early Blood A woman’s menstrual cycle can vary in length each month – it’s important for a woman to know her days of bleeding (hayd) and purity (tuhr) in case she has irregular bleeding (istihada). She will then have to look at her record, in order to align her bleeding with her place of menstruation and the number of days she regularly bleeds. The Fiqh of It If a woman experiences bleeding earlier than her normal place of habit, she cannot assume that it is hayd. Her place of habit is when she is due to bleed in relation to her recent hayd and tuhr habits. For a detailed e
  17. Number & Place When calculating habit in menstruation (hayd) and purity (tuhr), a woman looks at both the number of days (‘adad) as well as the place in the month (zaman) she bled. The Fiqh of It ‘Adad refers to the most recent number of days of valid blood (hayd) and valid purity (tuhr sahih)*. For example, Ayesha’s hayd was from September 1-5. Her following hayd was from October 1-5. Her ‘adad is 5 days for hayd and 25 days for tuhr. Zaman refers to the due date of a woman’s next menstrual cycle, based on her purity from the previous month. In this case it is 5 d
  18. Recording Cycles All women are obligated to keep a detailed record of bleeding and purity, referred to as a habit chart, including dates and times. In case of any irregularities, a written record allows her to accurately pinpoint which days are menstruation and purity. Without this, a woman will not know whether she is obligated to fast and pray. How to Record Your Cycle Technology has made it easy for a woman to keep track of her cycle. There are multiple apps available and there is always the traditional method of recording the information on a calendar or in a notebook.
  19. Habit Fluctuation One of the most important principles in the rulings regarding menstruation is habit. A woman’s habit is the number of days she normally menstruates, as well as where in the month she experiences her bleeding. For example, a woman has a 5-day bleeding cycle, followed by 20 days of purity. We would say her habit in menstruation (hayd) is 5 days and her habit in purity (tuhr) is 20 days. It’s completely normal to have fluctuations in one’s habit – it can change each month if the bleeding and purity remain in the allowed limits. For example, a woman bleeds 5 days, follow
  20. Colours Women experience variation in the colour and flow of menstrual blood – both convey important information regarding their health. While healthy menstrual blood ranges from dark red, brown, and even black, colours like grey and orange are indicative of a possible health issue, such as an infection. If a woman is concerned about changes in her cycle or the odour of her discharge, she should consult with a qualified medical professional. The Fiqh of It From an Islamic perspective, any coloured discharge in the habitual days of bleeding, other than clear or white, is con
  21. Min & Max Time Frames A woman’s menstrual cycle can vary in length. On average, a woman menstruates for 3-8 days, and her subsequent purity can range between 21-28 days. These fluctuations are fine as long as they fall within the fixed limits established by Islamic law (Shari’ah). As a woman has her menstrual cycles, it is extremely important that she record the respective dates of any bleeding: menstruation (hayd), post-natal bleeding (nifas) and irregular bleeding (istihada). She should also write down her purity (tuhr) dates as a record for future reference. The
  22. Question I received the following as a broadcasted message, and would just like to know what is its authenticity: “Menstruation in Ramadan. It is related in a Hadith that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said if a woman reads (at her time of haidh – menstruation). Subhanaka astaghfirullahal lathi la ilaha illa huwal hayyul qayyum 70 times at the time of every Salah or any other istighfar even if it be astagfirullah only, then she will get the reward of reading 1000 rak’ahs of Salah, 70 of her sins are forgiven, her status is raised in the eyes of Allah and for eve
