The birth of a human being is a most amazing phenomenon. The physical cycles that the woman’s body must endure in order to maintain this act of creation should be respected to the highest degree. Allah mentions that our mothers have borne us with difficulty and struggle, and because of this are due the utmost respect. One among many of the difficulties women must brave is the doubt that these conditions present to the correct observance of her religion. How are her fasting, prayers, ability to pursue studies, and conjugal relations, affected by her ever-changing physical condition in relation to her role as the sole vessel of the birth of man? As such, this is a really valuable publication by Darussalam.
