“Muslim women can delay menstrual cycle to fast during Ramadan” – Cleric


Salaudeen Abdulkadir, the chief missioner of the Igbomina-Ekiti Muslim Forum, says Muslim women who do not want to miss their fasting can medically delay the menstrual cycle

Mr Abdulkadir made the statement in llorin while delivering the annual Ramadan lecture organised by the Igbomina-Ekiti Muslim Forum national headquarters.

The chief missioner emphasised that as long as the process did not endanger the women’s lives, they could alter their cycle to fast the complete month of Ramadan.

He explained that Islam was applicable in every era or situation, adding that experts on Islamic Jurisprudence had researched and reached the conclusion that a woman could delay her cycle if she so desired.

The cleric stated that Allah had mandated Ramadan fasting on believing Muslims, adding that this was for health and spiritual rejuvenation.

Mr Abdulkadir, also the chief imam of Olanrewaju Mosque, reminded that Allah did not overburden man beyond his capacity.

The cleric warned Muslims against following cultures against

the practices of Islam, adding that screaming, shouting or calling Allah’s name in vain is prohibited. “You do not shout the name of Allah or call his name in vain.

Allah has taught us ways of calling on him and getting nearer to him.

“When you obey Allah, He will hold you in high regards. You must folow his injunctions to become nearer to Allah,” he advised.
