We have a local school where the gym is used for Fajr, Isha, and Juma Prayers (and Zuhr on school days)can a women who is menstruating enter this gym

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Can a women who is menstruating enter this gym if 1) Islamic education classes are being held in such a place during other than the timings of the daily prayers, 2) during school hours for gym class (at which time all prayer carpets are removed). There is also a stage attached to this gym where people pray only on juma and the 27th night of ramadan becuase of overcrowding. Can I sit here during Islamic education classes being held in this gym. Does to same rulling apply to a masjid at a University where all prayers are not held (and ittekkaf does not occur) but tafseer class is held.


It is permissible for a female to enter the gym at all times as the gym is not a Musjid.
