Can a women enter mosque during her periods?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

My children go to the mosque for weekend schooling. My wife has to stay with them till they finish. Since parents cannot stay in the class so the only other place is inside mosque. Is it permissble for women to stay in mosque during their periods?


A woman whilst having her menses may not enter the Musjid proper. She may be in the courtyard, ablution block, passage and other areas of the complex.

Enquire from the trustees the boundaries of the Musjid proper.
