It should be clear that it is permissible for menstruating women – according to some scholars – to recite the Qur’an so that they do not forget it and they do not miss learning the teachings of Shari`ah from the Book of Allah. If that is the case, then it should certainly be permissible for them to read books containing du`a’ that are mixed with verses and Hadiths, etc. This is the view believed to the most correct.

Sheikh Ahmad Kutty, a senior lecturer and Islamic scholar at the Islamic Institute of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, states: “There is almost consensus among scholars that a woman in her period is allowed to touch, or carry, or use books on Islam, or works of tafsir (Qur’an exegesis) that may contain verses of the Qur’an. The only difference of opinion among authentic scholars is about touching or carrying or reading from the entire Qur’an itself. Although most scholars consider it haram (unlawful) for a woman to touch or carry the full Qur’an, many scholars have determined it permissible for those who are teachers or students.
To repeat: there is absolutely nothing wrong with a woman who is studying Islam to carry, or read, or touch books or works of tafsir, which contain verses of the Qur’an during menstruation.”
