Concluding marriage during a woman's menses

A: If the marriage contract is concluded while the bride is in her menses, it does not affect the validity of the contract, whether the bride is a virgin or a matron. It is a valid contract and it is permissible for them to wed even if she is in menses. But it is not permissible for them to (Part No. 18; Page No. 108) have sexual intercourse before the woman's menstrual blood stops and she performs Ghusl (ritual bath following major ritual impurity). May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
