The third important point about “can we cut our hair during periods in Islam?” what I’m going to explain now is a specific answer about that. I want you to understand that well so that you understand whether Muslim women who are menstruating can do that or not.

In the previous discussion, I explained that sometimes combing hair can cause hair to fall out and that the Prophet Muhammad once ordered Aisha who was menstruating to comb her hair. Hair that falls out is hair that is detached from the head due to several things, such as being pulled out, combed, and so on. It can happen intentionally or unintentionally. Likewise, cutting hair. Cutting hair is removing some or all of the hair from the head. In general, it is done on purpose.

So, if you ask me, “can we cut hair during periods in Islam?”, then the answer is that we can cut hair during periods. Muslim women who are menstruating can cut their hair because it is permissible. The proof is the hadith about combing hair during periods as I explained earlier.

That is a brief explanation of “can we cut our hair during periods in Islam?”. As Muslims, we must understand that.
