A Women’s Guide to Spirituality in Ramadan during Menstruation and Postnatal Bleeding

While others will be busy in acts of worship such as fasting, praying, reading Qur'an, etc., most women will spend a portion of Ramadan in the state of menstruation (or postnatal bleeding), leaving them unable to participate in the aforementioned activities.

It is not easy to stay positive at times like these, especially when we see those around us rushing to masājid for taraweeh prayers, spending time in 'itikaaf and reciting the Qur'an.

Women must understand the rulings pertinent to each type, as they deal with important aspects of worship, such as purification, prayer and fasting. This lesson will try to explain the most important rulings relevant to each type of bleeding.
