Superstitions Related to Menstruation
God has created women to play a major role in the perpetuation of the human race. Menstruation is a natural process that takes place in a woman’s body every month. Menstruation is neither a curse on women nor a result of the so-called original sin of Eve. Then why are women not allowed to pray during periods?
Any discharge from private parts is considered as waste whether its urine, feces or menses or anything else. As it is mandated to clean yourself after urine and feces and one cannot pray or eat or do anything in this state, similarly, a woman has to get rid of the waste of menses. So, a woman needs to get rid of the physical impurity in order to stand in front of the Almighty.
This is the reason for women not being allowed to pray during periods. Also, during menses, a woman’s body is quite weak and easily prone to any allergies. Many women face dizziness and that’s the reason she has been prohibited from household chores.
