Can women recite the quran while on their period? There seems to be a difference in opinion, but what is the explanation?
Firstly, there is a difference of opinion regarding whether women are allowed to recite Qur’an on her period, and no general consensus. Secondly, we are taught to recite certain surah’s or ayahs regularly for protection and healing. How can a woman recite those surahs if it is not allowed? Thirdly, there is no clear text that prohibits the recitation of Qur’an for menstruating women.
