Why is Being Muslim Women Important?
If someone asks you, “Why is being Muslim women important?“, Then before you answer it, you must understand that the answer to that question is related to the question, “Why is Islam important?” I say that because Muslim women are a very important and inseparable part of Islam.
Islam is the religion of Allah brought by the Prophet Muhammad which perfected the previous religions. In other words, we can understand that there is perfection in the teachings of Islam that is absent in other religions. That’s why being a follower of Islam is very important.
So, the answer to the question, “Why is being Muslim women important?” it is because in their souls there is a perfection that is not present in the souls of women who follow other religions.
If someone asks you, “How to clean menstrual blood?“, The answer is that menstrual blood should be splashed with water. In addition, Muslim women must ensure that there is no trace of blood on their clothes. This can be done by rubbing, scraping, and so on.
Maybe now you are wondering, “What should be done if menstrual blood cannot be lost even though you have watered, scraped, and rubbed it?” What this means is that there is still some smell, color, and blood. If this is the case, then it doesn’t matter. In other words, Muslim women may wear clothes that have marks of menstrual blood.
That is general knowledge about how to clean menstrual blood.
If someone asks you, “What is Istihadhah?”, The answer is that it is the blood that comes out of a woman’s vagina in addition to menstrual blood. In the literacy of Islamic law, it is explained that if there is Istihadhah’s blood coming out of the vagina of Muslim women, then they cannot abandon their obligations as Muslim women.
In other words, if Muslim women experience Istihadhah, then they must pray and fast during Ramadan. If they don’t do that, then they sin. Why is that? The answer is because Istihadhah is not a factor that can cancel out the obligations of Muslim women.
One important thing I want to say here is that Istihadhah is a normal condition experienced by a woman.
If someone asks you, “What is the difference between menstrual blood and Istihadhah blood?“, The answer is that the color of menstrual blood is darker than Istihdhah blood. Menstruation can turn obligations, such as praying and fasting during Ramadan, into things that are not to be done. That is the basic difference between menstrual blood and Istihadhah blood.
One important thing about the difference between menstrual blood and Istihadhah blood that I want to explain here is that if a Muslim women experiences menstruation, then she should not have sex. But if she experiences Istihadhah, then she can do that.
That is the basic difference between menstrual blood and Istihadha blood. Muslims must know that.
If someone asks you, “What is allowed and what is prohibited when your wife is menstruating?“, The answer is that when your wife is menstruating, what is forbidden is to have sex, while what is allowed is to “play around” with her on the body other than the navel to the knee.
That is the basic knowledge of what is allowed and what is prohibited when the wife is menstruating. Muslims must understand that, especially those who are married. Why is that? The answer is because having sex with a menstruating wife is strictly prohibited in Islam and it has enormous consequences. So you have to remember that well!
If someone asks you, “If having sex with a menstruating wife is strictly prohibited in Islam, what is the punishment for a Muslim who does that?“, The answer is, that the punishment for a Muslim who does this is giving alms of 1 Dinar or half. Dinar. That is the opinion of ash-Shafii and Ahmad. Meanwhile, the opinion of Malik and Ahmad explained that Muslims who do this are not obliged to give alms, but must ask forgiveness from Allah for violating the rules.
That is the basic knowledge about punishment if a Muslim has sex with his menstruating wife. Muslims must understand that, especially those who are married.
If someone asks you, “If menstruation can change the law of compulsory prayer (Fajr, Dhuhr, Asr, Maghrib, and Isha) and fast during Ramadan is not allowed for Muslim women, can Muslim women who are menstruating be allowed to perform Hajj?”, the answer is that they can do Hajj except Tawaf. There are many explanations about it in Islamic legal literacy.
At the time of the Prophet Muhammad, Aisha bint Abu Bakr, his wife once asked him whether Muslim women who were menstruating were allowed to perform Hajj. He then replied that they could do it except Tawaf. That is the legal basis for this question. Muslims must understand that, especially Muslim women.
If someone asks you, “What is Nifas in Islam?“, The answer is the blood that comes out of a woman’s vagina when she gives birth or after giving birth. In general, women experience childbirth for forty days.
In Islamic legal literacy, when a Muslim women experiences Nifas, she is not allowed to pray and fast during Ramadan. If they have finished Nifas, then they have to do a fast in exchange for the fast they left during Ramadan, but they don’t have to replace the obligatory prayers they have left. Remember! Muslim women who experience childbirth are only required to change their fasts, not replace prayers. That is the basic knowledge about Nifas in Islam. Muslims must know that, especially Muslim women.
If someone asks you, “Can Muslim women travel alone?“, The answer is OK if the situation is safe for them. The point is that if the situation is unsafe for them, for example, if they are being threatened or harassed outside the home, then they should not leave the house.
In Islamic legal literacy about Hajj, Islamic jurists differ on that. The Hanabilah and ash-Shafi’iyah sects say that women should not travel even to perform Hajj except with their husband or a man who becomes her mahram. The Hanafiyah sect said that women should not travel for more than three days if they are not with their husbands or the men who become their mahram. That is allowed if you can be sure that the woman will be safe from any disturbance. The Malikiyah sect said, women should not go away for one day and one night except with their husband, a man who becomes her mahram, or a trusted friend, whether the friend is male or female, whether the friend is an adult or a child. child.
If someone asks you, “How can a husband make him happy when his wife is menstruating?“, The answer is that it can be done by playing together without having sex. It can be done by hand, tongue, or mouth. I think we adults already understand that. So, I won’t go into any specifics in this article.
I want to remind you again, that having sex with a menstruating wife is something that is strictly prohibited in Islam. I’ve explained that in the previous few paragraphs. The consequences of doing so were fatal. So, Muslims must understand about it so that they do not make a very fatal mistake.
If someone asks you, “How to explain women rape victims according to Islam?“, The answer is that women victims of rape are innocent. Why is that? Of course, the answer is because the woman was forced to do that. In fact, this woman will receive a reward from Allah for her patience.
There is one more important thing that I want to say in relation to the discussion of women victims of rape according to Islam, that women who are victims of rape must try to fight it with all their strength and deny it with a very strong denial. This is the essence of the guilt or sin that is forced to be removed.
That is the basic knowledge of female rape victims according to Islam. Muslims must understand that.
If someone asks you, “Is bathing with your wife Sunnah?“, The answer is “Yes. Bathing with wife is sunnah. ” What it means is that it is sunnah because the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alaihi wa sallam did it with one of his wives: Aisha bint Abu Bakr.
In one hadith, it is explained that Aisha bint Abu Bakr said, “I once bathed with the Messenger of Allah (Prophet Muhammad) sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam in one container because of jinabah.” Our hands are different in it. ” The hadith was narrated by al-Bukhari and Muslim. This is the legal basis for explaining that bathing with a wife is sunnah and permissible in Islam so that the husband-wife relationship becomes very harmonious. So, Muslims must understand that.
If someone asks you, “Can Muslim women breastfeed their husbands?“, The answer is “Yes. Muslim women can breastfeed their husbands. ” In fact, there are several virtues of breastfeeding a husband according to Islam:
One: breastfeeding your husband is proof of obedience to Allah and Prophet Muhammad.
Two: breastfeeding her husband is proof that she is a good Muslim women.
Three: breastfeeding her husband is proof that she is devoted and obedient to her husband.
Four: breastfeeding your husband is the reason she goes to Heaven.
