Is it permissible for women to recite the Quran or memorise it from the ipad or phone during her Periods?

Answer

In the Name of Allāh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

In principle, a woman in haid (menstruation) is not permitted to recite the Qur’ān whether from memory, using a copy of the Qur’ān or an electronic device.[1] This prohibition is clearly stated in a hadīth. Rasūlullah (sallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) has stated:

لاَ تَقْرَأِ الحَائِضُ، وَلاَ الجُنُبُ شَيْئًا مِنَ القُرْآنِ

Translation: A woman who is her haid (menstruation) and a person who is in the state of janābat (major impurity) should not recite anything from Qur’ān.[2] 

However, it is permissible for a woman in menstruation to engage in dhikr and du‘ā’.[3] As such, she may recite those verses of the Qur’ān which are in the context of a du‘ā’, such as Sūrah Fātihah, Āyat al-Kursī, etc. However, the intention should be of du‘ā’ and not to recite the Qur’ān.[4]
