Women attending dhikr during menses


Asalaamuayelaikum brother,

Bismillahir Rahman nir Raheem

Please, could you advise us to the correct legal ruling, or if it is disputed then what ruling Mowlana would advise us to follow concerning:

Are women allowed to enter a mosque for dhikkr (not prayer) if they are on their period?

If the ruling is that women are allowed to enter, what would be the correct adab when the mosque says women can’t enter and it is the place where our Naqshbandi dhikr is held. I will respectfully follow Mowlana’s advice.

As always thank you for taking the time to read and reply to my questions, may Allah SWT reward you.

Kind regards


It is not permissible for a menstruating woman to stay in the masjid to listen to dhikr or Qur’an recitation. She can stay in a place¬†outside the masjid where she can listen to dhikr via loudspeakers.
