Menses - Offering Eid prayers
  • Question:

    I would like to know if a woman can offer Eid prayers in masjid or at home and celebrate Eid during her menstrual cycle.


    Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh

    Thank you for your question.

    ‘Id prayers are performed in congregation. The Prophet (peace be upon him) encouraged women to come out to the congregational ‘Id prayers even though they may be experiencing menses and not be praying. Hence it is permissible for women to celebrate and join the congregations at ‘Id.

    And Allah knows best.
