Answered by: Maulana Selim Saldiran


Is it haram to read hadiths when menstruating?

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful


It is not haram to read Hadith when menstruating. The prohibition is only for reading the Quran. But it is recommended to read Hadith in a state of ghusl and wudu. [Radd Al-Muhtar, Dar al-Fikr, 1/293]
