Malam Salaudeen Abdulkadir, the Chief Missioner of Igbomina-Ekiti Muslim Forum, says Muslim women who don’t want to miss their fasting can medically delay the menstrual cycle.

Abdulkadir made the statement in Ilorin while delivering an annual Ramadan Lecture, organised by the Igbomina-Ekiti Muslim Forum, National Headquarters.

The chief missioner emphasised that as long as the process did not endanger the lives of the women, they could alter their cycle to fast the complete month of Ramadan.

When a woman is medically fit and certified by her physician, she can delay her menstrual cycle, he said. He explained that Islam was applicable in every era or situation, adding that experts on Islamic Jurisprudence had researched and reached the conclusion that a woman could delay her cycle if she so desired to do so.

He stated that Allah had mandated Ramadan fasting on believing Muslims, adding that this was for health and spiritual rejuvenation.

Abdulkadir, who is also the Chief Imam of Olanrewaju Mosque, reminded that Allah did not overburden man beyond his capacity.

The cleric warned Muslims against following cultures against the practices of Islam, adding that screaming, shouting or calling Almighty Allah’s name in vain is totally prohibited.

“You do not shout the name of Allah or call his name in vain. Allah has taught us ways on calling on him and getting nearer to him.

“When you obey Allah, He will hold you in high regards. You must folow his injunctions to become nearer to Allah,” he advised.

Similarly, Abdulkadir emphasised the importance of reading the Holy Quran, adding that “Ramadan is the month of the Quran”.

He pointed out that Ramadan was not prescribed for the very sick, and that if life was threatened due to fasting, then they were excused from the obligation.

He added that though other culutres came with their own form of fasting, Ramadan fasting was unique as it was prescribed by Allah, who instructed Muslims on its process. (NAN)
