  1. Underthe Productivity in Ibaadah section of this article, I notice that the third point suggests reading the Quran.

    “The menstruating woman and the one who is in a state of impurity (janaabah) should not recite anything of the Qur’aan.” (Reported by al-Tirmidhi, 131; Ibn Maajah, 595; al-Daaraqutni (1/117); al-Bayhaqi, 1/89.

    Wallahu A’lam.

    • Assalamu Alaikum Brother Hashem,
      Alhamdullilah you have supported your perspective with an evidence to look for.
      Being a muslimah and striving to learn my deen, i have come across both women and men who have several different types of viewpoints on this subject matter.,and to my knowledge i presume the subject to be contraversial and its hard to stick to a narrow based thinking.

      Alhamdulillah,with Allah’s Mercy and Blessings i came across articles and others resources to assist me in continuing my acts of ibadah.
      The best out of all, suggest that we recite the quran using a computer or any other technological devices ,in order to prevent us from touching the mushaf.(Quran),told by a sheikh in peace tv.and there as an excuse for women teachers in madrasa.
      Alhamdulillah,this has helped me to continue reciting our Holy Quran all day long.and Allah doesnot prohit the believers from reciting the Quran under this situation.

      Jazak Allah Khairan.
      May Allah increase the understanding of deen to you,me and all readers and the muslim Ummah.

      • Wa alaikum as-salam sister, thanks for opening my mind to the other side of this issue, that was all what I knew about this matter and thought of sharing it along with you (audience), but alhamdolillah as long as you have literature that supports you then all’s fine inshaAllah. Jazaki Allah kul a l-khair.

  2. A very good thought. I’ve been looking for this article for a long time ago. Thanks for your contribution. May Allah bless you..

  3. I was looking for an article like this at the beginning of ramadan. Never mind, I got it now. Thanks for your post.

  4. Nothing more upsetting than getting a menses in Ramadan. It’s not “vacation” at all, it’s like mother nature banishes me to get out of the game xD. I think dhikr, charity, and learn Islam are the best ways to reap reward without letting any “vacation” days makes you lazy.

    (Anyway, I also write this stuff in my blog : 30 deeds you can do when you’re menstruating…. )

  5. Jazak Allahu kheiran for this! This year (1435) on the 10th day of Ramadan, I had an appointment with my cardiologist (I have a stent in my L.A.D.), who advised me against continuing the fast after he saw my lab results. I resisted the idea and told him I felt pretty good. He said, “That’s why they call it the silent killer.” So I resolved not to fast any more, at least for this Ramadan. But the days since then have seemed so aimless and depressing. You are giving me hope that I can actually have a Ramadan with striving and goal-setting and a sense of achievement at the end of it. I have renewed my commitment, and it is because of finding your article. May Allah multiply your rewards, and I hope to meet you in the Akhirah if not in the Duniah.

    • Assalaamu alaikum Kay,

      We’re really pleased and humbled to hear this has renewed your hope! Alhamdulillah. May the last few days of Ramadan be blessed for you. Ameen.

  6. Alhamdulillah I love this article…In shaa Allah this ramadaan I want to be more productive as procrastination is my biggest weakness.May Allah help us all.
