Answered by Shaykh Faraz Rabbani

Can a menstruating female send salaam on the Prophet (saws) or does she need to be in a pure state to do that?

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Walaikum assalam wa rahmatullah,

I pray that this finds you well, and in the best of health and spirits. May Allah grant you all good and success in this life and the next.

Sending blessings upon the Beloved Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) remains recommended for Muslim women during their menstrual period. Only pronounced recitation of the Qur’an is impermissible. Reading the Qur’an (without ‘reciting’) remains permitted, as does listening to the Qur’an.

See the following reader on the fiqh of menstruation:

And Allah alone gives success.
