We begin with Allah’s blessed name, we praise him and we glorify him, seek his forgiveness and ask him to guide us. Whoever Allah guides, None can lead astray and whoever he misguides, None can guide. There is no power and no strength except from Allah, The most high, the Most great, the most powerful. We bear witness that there is no one worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers. We pray for peace and blessings on all the noble messengers and in particular on the last of them all “the blessed prophet Mohammad (pbuh)”

One should know that having sexual relations with one's wife during the menstrual period is absolutely forbidden. If one has transgressed any of Allah's limits in ignorance, one should seek sincere repentance immediately.

Every woman knows when her regular day is and when her menstruation begins; and if out of ignorance or forgetfulness she had sexual affairs with her husband when her menses began, then the couple should turn to Allah in 'Taubah' and seek sincere repentance.

Narrated Abdullah ibn Abbas: The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said about a person who had intercourse with his wife while she was menstruating: He must give one dinar or half a dinar in alms.Abu Dawood [Book:1, Hadith:264]

Dear brother, the deen has been established and there could be no change in the rulings given by allah and his messanger.The Islamic dinar is equal to 4.22 gms of 22k gold and half of dinar will be equal to 2.11 gms of 22k gold. And Allah alone knows the best.

I ask Allah to make this a sincere effort, seeking his pleasure, and I ask him to grant us refuge in him from the evils within ourselves, and that in our deeds. I ask him to grant us success in achieving whatever pleases him; And May Allah Shower His blessings and mercy upon our beloved Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), his family and his Companions and on all those who follow him until the final hour.
