Praise be to Allaah.
We do not know of any du’aa’ in the saheeh Sunnah that is
like the one mentioned by our sister.
It is not permissible for anyone to attribute to the
Messenger (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) things that he
did not say. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him)
said: “Whoever tells lies about me deliberately, let him take his place in
Hell.” Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 1291; Muslim, 933.
Not every hadeeth that a person hears or reads in a book is
saheeh, rather he must verify whether the hadeeth was indeed narrated from
the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), and it should
be taken from trustworthy scholars who have sound knowledge of the hadeeth
of the Messenger (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him).
It was narrated by Muslim in the introduction to his
Saheeh (5), and by Abu Dawood (4992) that the Messenger (peace and
blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “It is sufficient lying for a man to
speak of everything that he hears.” Classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in
Saheeh Abi Dawood.
Because usually he hears
both true and false things, and if he were to speak of everything that he
hears, he would be lying because he would be telling of something that did
not happen. End quote.
It is permissible for a menstruating woman to remember Allaah
by reciting whatever du’aa’s and dhikrs she wants; there is no reason why
she should not do that. And it is permissible for her to recite Qur’aan, as
is the view of Abu Haneefah and the view favoured by Shaykh al-Islam (may
Allaah have mercy on them both).
Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah said in Majmoo’ al-Fataawa,
There is no basis for
saying that she (a menstruating woman) is not allowed to recite Qur’aan. The
quotation, “The menstruating woman and the one who is junub should not
recite Qur’aan” is a weak hadeeth, according to the consensus of the
scholars who have knowledge of hadeeth.
Women used to menstruate at the time of the Messenger of
Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), and if reciting was
haraam, as prayer is, this would have been something to which the Prophet
(peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) drew the attention of his
ummah, and the Mother of the Believers would have known it, and that would
have been something that was transmitted to the people. Since no one
narrated any such prohibition from the Prophet (peace and blessings of
Allaah be upon him), it is not permissible to make it haraam when it is
known that he did not forbid it. Since he did not forbid it even though
there were plenty of menstruating women around at his time, then it is known
that it is not haraam. End quote.
But she should recite Qur’aan without touching the Mus-haf,
either by reciting what she knows by heart, or reading from the Mus-haf
whilst wearing gloves or something similar that will prevent her from
touching the Mus-haf directly.
