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 Quran during menstruation.


Responding to your question, Sheikh Ahmad Kutty, a senior lecturer and an 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 (Quran 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 Quran itself. Although most scholars consider it haram for a woman to touch or carry the full Quran, 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 Quran during menstruation.

Almighty Allah knows best.
