Fiqh of Menstruation
This is a four-week course on the essential rulings of menstruation and abnormal bleeding. Essential obligatory (fard ‘ayn) knowledge for all women, this is a special opportunity to be taught by a female certified Obstetrician and Gynecologist with sound Islamic teaching. The course will help understand the different types of fluids/bleeding and calculate a full cycle of menses and purity with worked examples. Rulings of permissible and impermissible actions during menses will be discussed in detail. The rulings of menstruation affect many aspects of our ritual worship, and many sisters of all ages struggle with confusing and irregular menstrual cycles. A topic sometimes seen as taboo or misunderstood, it is very important to have this knowledge that affects our daily lives to perform our worship with confidence and correctness. This course is a compilation of many books and has been specifically designed by Dr Haifaa. The sessions will be conducted via Zoom and Google Classroom. Students will be able to engage with the teacher and students beyond the lesson within Google Classroom. Weekly notes and recordings of the class will be provided. Further information will be provided after registration, inshaAllah.
