The Details of the Question
Can women read the Quran while they are menstruating?
The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

A woman cannot read or recite even a verse from the Quran when she is in menstruation. She can only read some verses that contain supplication like the chapter al-Fatiha and ayah al-kursi with the intention of prayer. A woman who is in menstruation can listen to the khatm al-Quran (reading the Quran from the beginning to the end). It is hoped that she receives the reward of the khatm when she listens to it.
