As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

May Allaah Ta’aala bless your daughter and make her a true haafizah of the Qur’aan.

In principle, it is not permissible for a woman to verbally recite the Qur’aan while menstruating. We understand that this may sound difficult at first. However, rest assured that there are thousands of female students becoming haafizahs and they all abide by this. During the haydh days, she may listen to recordings and follow along in her mind. She may also read in her mind without verbalizing anything. While doing this however, she may not touch a physical mus’haf. Remember, the ability to memorize comes from Allaah Ta’aala.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
