Is it permissible for a menstruating woman to enter the Masjid (mosque)?
What is the evidence for this?
All praise be to Allah Alone, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger, and his family and Companions.
A menstruating woman is not permitted to enter the Masjid, except by way of passing by or crossing through it, if she needs to, like the case of a person who is junub (in a state of major ritual impurity), for Allah (Exalted be He) says (what means):
O you who believe! Approach not As-Salât (the prayer) when you are in a drunken state until you know (the meaning) of what you utter, nor when you are in a state of Janâba, (i.e. in a state of sexual impurity and have not yet taken a bath) except when travelling on the road (without enough water, or just passing through a mosque), till you wash your whole body.
May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
