Sayyiduna Jaabir Radiyallahu Anhu reports that Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam said:One prayer in my Masjid (Madinah) is better than one thousand prayers elsewhere, except the Sacred Masjid (Makkah), and one prayer in the Sacred Masjid is better than one hundred thousand prayers elsewhere.” (Ibn Majah)

Question and Answer:

 

  1. Can a female attend the Masjid/Haramain on Jumuah during her menses only to listen to the khutbah?

 

(Question published as received)

 

  1. It is not permissible for a woman in the state of menstruation (Haidh) to enter any Musjid including Musjid-ul-Haram (Makkah) and Musjid Nabawi (Madinah).

 

However, a woman in the state of menstruation may enter the Safa and Marwa area of Masjid-ul-Haram as it does not form part of the Masjid.

 

A woman may listen to the khutba through the various platforms provided without going to the Masjid.

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows Best
