Hadith regarding fasting during women's menses/menstrual cycle:

4:51 PM

For me and my Muslim sisters, here is a Hadith regarding fasting while women are in their menses/menstrual cycle:


Summarized Sahih Al-Bukhari
Translated by Dr. Muhammad Muhsin Khan
Islamic University, Al-Madinah Al-Munawwarah

6. The Book of Menses
Chapter 6. A menstruating woman should leave observing Saum (fast).

210. Narrated by Abu Sa'id Al-Khudri:
Once Allah's messenger (sallallahou alayhi wasallam) went out to the Musalla [to offer the Salat (prayer)] of Eid al Adha or Al-Fitr prayer. Then he passed by the women and said, "O women! Give alms, as I have seen that the majority of the dwellers of He'll-fire were you (women)." They asked, "Why is it so, O Allah's messenger?" He replied, "You curse frequently and are ungrateful to your husbands. I have not seen anyone more deficient in intelligence and religion than you. A catious sensible man could be led astray by some of you." The women asked, "O Allah's messenger! What is deficient in our intelligence and religion?" He said, "Is not the witness/evidence of two women equal to the witness of one man?" They replied in the affirmative. He said, "This is the deficiency in your intelligence. Isn't it true that a woman can neither pray nor fasting during menses?" The women replied in the affirmative. He said, "This is the deficiency in your religion."
