Reciting Qur’an in the state of haidh

Q: I am a teacher who assists girls with the memorisation of the Glorious Quran Alhamdulilah. The problem that students face is their menstruation days at times exceeds to be 10 days. During these days I make them listen to their Dowr (revision), but once they start praying they have already forgotten a portion of their Hifz. This is a major obstacle that the students suffer who are undertaking Quran memorisation. Please state a solution for this. My colleague who is a Hafiza Masha Allah was able to obtain a fatwa of praying her Dowr (revision) during her Haidh. Your help is very much appreciated. May Allah Taalah reward you for all your efforts for Deen.


A: Reading of the Qur’aan in the state of haidh is impermissible. What is the sense in rushing to complete and in the process you will commit a haraam.

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