Ask an Alim

can females pray nafil during their mentural cycle?


I have been told an amal that need praying on the 11th night of ramzan. just want to clarify can u still pray nafil if u are on ur menstural cycle? I just want to knw can i still pray nafil and do the ammal?


Waalaykum Salam

A woman during her menstrual cycle cannot pray any Namaz. be it Mustahab! however she can do all the other A’maal

I find it wise to mention that all the holy texts that carry the name(s) of Allah, the Holy Prophet (s) and His Holy House hold (s) should not be touched even if you have made Ablution (wudhoo)
