Shar’i rulings pertaining to Islamic sisters

What is the Islamic ruling for a woman on reciting and teaching the Holy Quran in the state of Shar’i ‘Uzr [عُذّر]?

Question 1: What do the blessed ‘Ulama [Islamic scholars] state regarding the following matter: What is the Islamic ruling on reciting and teaching the Holy Quran in the state of ‘Uzr (monthly cycle or postnatal bleeding)? Is even a teacher not allowed to teach it? If she can teach it, what is the method? How should she teach by breaking breaths? Moreover, are those who teach in Madrasa-tul-Madinah Online and in houses also allowed to do so?

بِسْمِ اللّٰہِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِیْمِ

اَلْجَوَابُ بِعَوْنِ الْمَلِکِ الْوَھَّابِ اَللّٰھُمَّ ھِدَایَۃَ الْحَقِّ وَالصَّوَابِ

It is not permissible to recite the Holy Quran in the state of Shar’i ‘Uzr (monthly cycle or postnatal bleeding). However, a teacher is permitted to teach the Holy Quran in a specific way, whether she teaches it at home or in an organisation, etc. The specific way is: A teacher should not recite two words in a single breath but she should break her breath after teaching one word and should then teach the second word. Moreover, she should make the intention while reciting that she is not reciting the Holy Quran, and should make [some other] intention, for example, she is pronouncing Arabic words. Furthermore, there is certainly no harm in spelling words by pronouncing the letters individually. In fact, different letters of a single word can be pronounced in a single breath as well. However, reciting more than one word in a single breath is not permitted.

Note: Remember! In the state of Shar’i ‘Uzr, it is permissible for every woman to recite the Ayahs which carry the meaning of Du’a or Hamd-o-Sana, with the intention of Du’a or Hamd-o-Sana; whether she is a teacher or not.

Duration of the ‘Iddat of a pregnant woman after her husband’s demise

Question 2: What do the blessed ‘Ulama and Muftis [Islamic jurists] state regarding the following matter: My husband has passed away. My question is: I am pregnant, so when will my ‘Iddat end; and can I go to the doctor for check-up during ‘Iddat, or not?

بِسْمِ اللّٰہِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِیْمِ

اَلْجَوَابُ بِعَوْنِ الْمَلِکِ الْوَھَّابِ اَللّٰھُمَّ ھِدَایَۃَ الْحَقِّ وَالصَّوَابِ

If a woman is pregnant when her husband passes away, her ‘Iddat is till the end of pregnancy, i.e. till the birth of the child. Therefore, your ‘Iddat is till the end of pregnancy; your ‘Iddat will end when the child will be born. During ‘Iddat, it is Haraam [prohibited] for a woman to go out of the house without a Shar’i need. Therefore, if a woman falls ill during ‘Iddat and it is possible to call the doctor to the house for check-up, it is impermissible for her to go out. However, if the doctor does not come to the house for check-up or it is such type of need which cannot be fulfilled at home, it is permissible for her to go to the doctor for check-up, ensuring that Pardah is observed; [it is permissible] as going out in this case is because of a Shar’i need.

وَاللہُ اَعْلَمُ عَزَّوَجَلَّ وَ رَسُوْلُہٗ اَعْلَم صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ
