    1. I'm not "unclean down there". Seriously speak for yourself.

    2. The average amount of blood lost during a period is 30-40 millilitres (ml). About 3 tablespoons. But yes, let's all behave like it's rivers instead of 3 tablespoons. Because being daft is fun isn't it.

    3. I don't love them. I just understand that they are natural and necessary, therefore not something that needs to be feared/treated like it's a disease.

    Quite frankly, most well adjusted men and women understand this, and therefore don't give a tiny rats ass because it's just a little blood.



    It's not dirty. It's just sad that you have been taught think that. And the fact that it is found in other religions just shows that all religions hate women and will use any excuse to keep them down. "You're so dirty you can't touch our special magic book?" That's the type of hateful nonsense you could only find in religion.
    hey biyatch Islam is the reason Your getting an eductation. Before Islam women were oppressed. And we're treated really badly. That's why so many south Asians converted and so many Africans, Arabs and etc... Just because Islam is protrayed badly by the media in terms of women's rights don't mean the religion is actually about that. And yes I was bored so I came on TSR.

    Moron
    Hey I'm curious... but why is it so frowned upon to read the quran on your period, not touch it etc. according to religion. Is it like, god is unhappy you're not pregnant?

    It doesn't matter whether u cover it up or not, youre still unclean down there because of the continuous flow
    Even though I'm a woman and I love my body you're expecting me to love my periods which are nasty and painful LOL im sure a lot of women love it...
    Can someone please explain what UNCLEAN means?
    And as a woman myself i find it surprising that you''re willing to brand yourself unclean just because religion says so...

    I'd rather go to this imaginary place called hell than devout my time and whole life to an imaginary friend. Look, religion is a delusion. Chances are that you were born into a religious family and raised as someone of the main religions. So, at what point did you actually choose to become religious or have faith? You just inherited it. If you weren't born into a family of religion X, you'd probably be religion Y. Isn't it convenient that people think their religion is the only religion? really? Especially stupid people who can't even consider other ideas because their religion is so special even though they inherited it. You were in a position which makes you very likely to be of a certain religious faith. Religion is a delusion instilled into people's minds because they think they are too precious to just die and rot forever. If I started talking about some imaginary being, you'd call me insane. But, that's exactly what religion does. So you have fun wasting your time only to never even be able to answer whether there is a god, even if there was one. Because you're just going to die like every single person has. You're really not as special as you think you are. Also, if religion didn't exist, the world would be a lot more peaceful but you still follow it blindly. Congratulations.

    Well...how about if you change your pad once in a while? Then you wouldn't feel so icky and disgusting. My period makes me feel a little uncomfortable, but other than that, it's really not that bad. Wear a tampon, and you forget about it. I don't feel dirty, unclean, unworthy of prayer on my period. Banned from my place of worship because I am a non-pregnant female. It's a shame that this is the mentality that your Allah puts on you.

    There's a number of women who actually do miss their periods when going through menopause - it's their youth, their ability to have children etc.

    What I find ironic is the amount of pressure put on women to get married and have children, and the men who marry young girls (the prophet himself), and yet, having your period - a sign that you are fertile and young - is seen as such a bad thing.

    I don't have time to analyse every single fault in your speech except the last part in particular. It's not seen as a bad thing in the way you are thinking. Women are not allowed to pray or touch the Quran during menses but they may very well get the reward for it because they intended to pray/read Quran and Islam is all about intention.

    Also any pain or discomfort a woman faces during a period/pregnancy is immediately counted as a good deed by God (the same applies to both genders) as described by the Prophet (peace and prayers upon him). So the more pain/discomfort -> More reward

    Currently Facing an issue where I lied to my mum that I was on my periods so she would stop bugging me about praying 24/7 and waking me up in the morning.

    Well we today she was like when are you gonna shower cause it's been ages (as in the special one to purify yourself after periods) n i was like Yh. Went to take a shower n I've genuinely started my periods so like err.

    I know I can pretend to pray but the issue lies in: My mum makes us read Quran everyday (which is why she knows it's been 10 days) and you can't read on your period!! Idk what to do its a big sin to read the Quran on your period...
    the bigger sin was not to do prayers, I don't get this post

    Hi, I was just wondering why it is considered a sin to read the Quaran (I'm so sorry I think I've spelt that wrong) on your period? I'm sorry if I sound ignorant I'm just generally intrigued as to why that would be 😊

    Im going to be honest with you, go to your mom aot down and tell her. She is your mother im sure she will understand.
    You are human and you made a mistake.
    Now repent to Him. He is merciful and loves forgiving.
    Just never repeat this.

    I once lied of my period too when i was in grade 7 not at home at school. But then i actually got them. I swore never to do it again.
    And I get you on the prayer part too.
    I feel horrible when i think of it but i didnt feel like praying and didn't pray until i realized what I was doing with my life.
    Allhamdullilah its all good now. Juat tell your mom.
    I will make dua for you that this is made easy for you.
    But lying will only make it worse. Believe me.

    Because in your period you are not clean. Its dirty. That is wjy we are supposed too wudu before praying and reading Quran.
    If we pray or read when we arent clean, havent washed our urine and stool properly is also a sin. Because satan loves dirt.
    And cleanliness is half of faith in Islam.

    You are wrong. No it is not a big sin to read Quran.

    You can read the quran by heart just looking at the Quran and not reciting.

    Missing prayer is the biggest sin because it is obligatory upon Every Muslim.

    You should tell her that you have lied to her. I wish i was taught how to read the Quran. I read only the translation.
