S. Pad


Assalamu alaikum shaikh. In a female’s country,  maximum sellers of sanitary pad, underpants are male and female sellers are rare. If her brother or father or husband or male members of her family bought these for her,  will she be sinner in this case?


Wa `alaykum As-Salamu waRahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.

There is no stigma attached to issues such as Hayd (menses) or Nifas (post-natal bleeding) in Islam. It is a pagan notion that Islam has eradicated, so we ought to reject it altogether.

The Prophet (peace be upon him) taught us not to be ashamed of menses as it is ‘something that Allah has decreed for the daughters of Adam.” He said this when suddenly Aishah slipped away excused herself from sharing the bed with the Prophet, and on being told that she was menstruating, he said the above words.

That is why the women-companions of the Prophet often come and raise questions on issues relating to menses and other women’s issues in front of other companions. Aishah, the Prophet’s wife, praised them for their boldness in raising such questions without any shyness.

Therefore, I would tell you there is no need for you to be ashamed of your father, husband or brother getting the pads or underpants for you if you are not able to get them for yourself.

Almighty Allah Knows best.
