Regulations of Worship During Menses
Allaah commands the believers to adhere to lslaam in its totality: "0 you who believe! Enter into Islam completely, and do not follow the footsteps of Satan. 'verily, he is to you a clear enemy" [Al-Baqarah 2:208] The true way to guidance and prosperity is through correcting our apparent deeds by complete adherence to the Sunnah and our hearts by sincerity and continued awareness of Allaah . May He grant us guidance and facilitation. A normal woman spends about one quarter of her life while she is in a state of manses or post-natal bleeding. During those times, a woman is physically and emotionally stressed. She needs special guidelines to help her conduct her religious and daily life properly and satisfactorily. Islam, being the final and most complete religion, thoroughly covers and wisely directs all aspects of the human life. Therefore, it is no wonder that it deals with manses issues in a clear and sympathetic manner. When the Islamic regulations of manses are well understood and correctly implemented, they make it easy for a woman to conduct her close-to-illness menstrual cycle in a smooth and balanced manner. Because of this, we find it necessary to re-establish the correct Islamic teachings regarding various manses issues. Thus, we offer to our readers the present book, hoping that many of the English-speaking Muslim women will be able to benefit from it in guiding themselves and others toward a more healthy practical and spiritual life during manses.
