Haidh and teaching

Fatwaa ID: 426

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

  1. If a woman in haidh is teaching/giving a talk and wants to relate a Qur’anic verse, does she have to pause after a few words?
  2. When teaching Qur’an whilst in haidh, after how many words should a woman pause, or is it dependent on phrases & meanings?

3.1. I have learnt that a woman in haidh is not allowed to touch a page (not the text) which consists mostly of Qur’anic verses, be it in any language. It this correct?

3.2 If yes, what should a woman in haidh do when there are such pages in between a Kitaab? Could she touch the empty space of that page?

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

  1. It will be best that she does not read out the verse. She may make reference to it and give a summary of it instead. If she chooses to mention the words of the verse, then it will be necessary for her to break it up and pause after every few words. It will not be permissible for her to recite the verse or portions of it together.
  2. She should stop every few words, such that it does not give a meaningful sentence or phrase. Likewise, her intention must not be tilaawah.

3.1. That is applicable to a mus’haf, not books other than that. However, if the book is such that the mus’haf content is the majority of it, then it would be treated as a mus’haf.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
