Like hijab, menstruation is another issue that I get asked a lot of questions about. Most women seem to have some confusion in this matter.
Because menstruation is related to tahaarah (purification) and tahaarah is required for prayer, well….every women needs to know the proper rulings of the various “scenarios”.
Shaikh Ibn Uthaimeen wrote a detailed book about this issue entitled “The Natural Blood of Women.”
There’s a nice translation of this book done by Dr. Bilal Philips. A lousy and partial copy of this nice book can be read here.
There’s another translation by Dr. Saleh As-Saleh (rahimahullah), who also did a lecture series based on this book. I’d advise everyone to go through either the book or the lecture, because this information is a must-know for every Muslim woman.
