Woman in menses entering a Musallah?
Q. I have a query regarding a woman in Haidh. Can a woman in this state sit on a Musalla at a Jamaat Khana – one that is within a shopping mall / restaurant etc?
A. It is permissible for a female in Haidh (menses) to enter a Jamaat Khana or Musalla as the laws of the Musjid do not apply. (al-Fatawa al-Hindiyyah, Vol: 1, Pg: 38, Dar Ihya-it Turath al-Arabi)
It is not permissible for a female in Haidh or an impure person to enter a Musjid. (al-Fatawa al-Hindiyyah, Vol: 1, Pg: 38, Dar Ihya-it Turath al-Arabi)
