SubhanAllah! Purify Yourself. (Hadith No. 311)

Salam,
Bismillah.

Volume 1, Book 6, Number 311:

Narrated ‘Aisha:

A woman asked the Prophet about the bath which is take after finishing from the menses. The Prophet told her what to do and said, “Purify yourself with a piece of cloth scented with musk.” The woman asked, “How shall I purify myself with it” He said, “Subhan Allah! Purify yourself (with it).” I pulled her to myself and said, “Rub the place soiled with blood with it.”

Prophet (SAW) had a lot of haya (modesty) when it came to such matters. He didn’t refuse to teach women such matters but refrained from being too explicit. That was his way (SAW)..

Wassalam.

Mourning the Dead Husband (Hadith No. 310)

Salam,
Bismillah.

Hadith no. 308 is a repeat. Read it here. Hadith no. 309 is also a repeat. Read it here.

Today’s Hadith lays out the rulings for a woman who just lost her husband (widow).

Volume 1, Book 6, Number 310:

Narrated Um-‘Atiya:

We were forbidden to mourn for a dead person for more than three days except in the case of a husband for whom mourning was allowed for four months and ten days. (During that time) we were not allowed to put kohl (Antimony eye powder) in our eyes or to use perfumes or to put on colored clothes except a dress made of ‘Asb (a kind of Yemen cloth, very coarse and rough). We were allowed very light perfumes at the time of taking a bath after menses and also we were forbidden to go with the funeral procession .

  1.  Widow mourns for 4 months and 10 days.
  2. No make-up/perfume/colored clothes i.e. any kind of zeenat (beautification).
  3. No funeral procession i.e. no getting out of the house unless necessary.
  4. Even while taking a bath, use of light perfumed products (soap, shampoo, gel etc.)
It’s pretty clear, I suppose. :)
Wassalam.

Women and I’tikaf (Hadith No. 307)

Salam,
Bismillah.

Volume 1, Book 6, Number 307:

Narrated ‘Aisha:

“One of the wives of Allah’s Apostle joined him in l’tikaf and she noticed blood and yellowish discharge (from her private parts) and put a dish under her when she prayed.”

This clearly indicates that women are allowed to do I’tikaf in the month of Ramadan. Who plans to do it this Ramadan? :)

Wassalam.

Precautions in Istihadha (Hadith No. 306)

Salam,
Bismillah.

Hadith no. 305 is a repeat. Read it here.

Volume 1, Book 6, Number 306:

Narrated ‘Aisha:

Once one of the wives of the Prophet did I’tikaf along with him and she was getting bleeding in between her periods. She used to see the blood (from her private parts) and she would perhaps put a dish under her for the blood. (The sub-narrator ‘Ikrima added, ‘Aisha once saw the liquid of safflower and said, “It looks like what so and so used to have.”)

Reference: Istihadha.

The blood of istihadha has a different color than the period blood. And the precautions that a woman needs to take while experiencing istihadha are mentioned in this Hadith and the one given in reference above. That she should figure out a way to contain this blood and wash it away before each Salah, followed by fresh wudu. I hope it’s clear enough. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask. :)

Wassalam.

How To (Hadith No. 304)

Salam,
Bismillah.

Hadith no. 302 is a repeat. Read it here. Hadith no. 303 is also a repeat. Read it here.

Volume 1, Book 6, Number 304:

Narrated Asma’ bint Abi Bakr:

A woman asked Allah’s Apostle, “O Allah’s Apostle! What should we do, if the blood of menses falls on our clothes?” Allah’s Apostle replied, “If the blood of menses falls on the garment of anyone of you, she must take hold of the blood spot, rub it, and wash it with water and then pray in (with it).”

It’s pretty simple. Most of us already know it, but there’s no harm in reminding.
The ease here is that the affected clothes can be used to pray in after cleaning. But Jewish women had to cut off the piece of cloth where blood of menses touched. So Alhamdulillah for Islam! :)

Wassalam.
