Having the menstrual period while holding the Mus-haf

Q 3: A Muslim woman studies the Qur'an in a nearby village. While on the way to her lesson one day, she got her menses while holding the Qur'an. What should she have done in this case?

A: It is not permissible for a person who is in a state of minor or major ritual impurity to hold the Qur'an without a barrier. Since this woman became in a state of major ritual impurity, which is menstruation, she should have held the Qur'an while placing something between it and her hand, i.e. A piece of cloth, a glove, and so on.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
