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?
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.
