To Touch Turbah or Offer Prayer during Menses
Q: Is a menstruating woman permitted to touch the turbah of Imam Husayn (a.)? Her children used to say their prayer with her and while in menses they ask her why she does not pray. As a result, she stands facing qiblah bowing and prostrating as if she is really praying. Is that permissible?
A) She is allowed to touch turbah. Also, when prayer time arrives, it is recommended for a menstruating woman to change her pad/cotton, make wuḍū’, sit down for a prayer period facing qiblah, and remember Allah, the Exalted.
