1. What is the ruling regarding teaching Quran during haidh? Can one correct the mistakes? And can a teacher recite one or two words to give a lesson or correct words?

2. Similarly, what is the ruling regarding reciting Quran for the student in the state of haidh? Can she recite one or two words in front of the muallima in those days?



1. In the state of haidh it is not permissible for a woman to touch the Qur’an or recite the Qur’an. However, if she recites one or two words in order to correct someone’s recitation, it will be permissible as reciting one or two words is not regarded as recitation of the Qur’an.

2. During the days of haidh, she should not give sabak.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
