“They ask you (O Muhammad ٍSallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) concerning menstruation. Say, “It is impure so leave (conjugal relations with) women during (their period of) menstruation and do not go unto them (do not have conjugal relations with your wives) until they are cleansed (until the menstrual cycle is complete)” (Surah Baqara 2; 222)
