This is a topic which applies to every Muslimah; therefore, it is an essential course to study. Many of the fuqahaa mention that it is obligatory upon every Muslimah to educate herself on these issues. To be unaware of these issues may lead to her displeasing Allah by leaving something that is obligatory or performing something that is unlawful. This is because haid is a state of impurity and purity plays a very big role in many of the acts of worship we are required to do like salaah, sawm, recitation of Qur’aan etc. therefore, it is necessary for a muslimah to learn about these issues as it will directly affect her worship of Allah and hence affect her relationship with Allah.
