The menstruating women touching the Qur’aan?

Sheikh Al Alaamah Muqbil Ibn Haadee AlWaadi’ee was asked

Question:Is it permissible for the menstruating women to touch the Qur’aan

Answer: There is no problem in this due to there being no proof showing the impermissibility of this, as for the Hadeeth (the Qur’aan shouldnt be touched except by the one that is Dhaahir (pure) ) 1 then Imaam Shawkaanee said:what is meant by pure in this Hadeeth is the Mu’min (the believer), due to the proof the Prophet said (Verily the Muslim doesnt become impure) 2 and the Prophet (prohibted travelling with the Qur’aan to the lands of the enemy) 3
