Menses from the perspective of science and Maqasid Syariah

Research output: Research - peer-reviewReview article

Abstract

Each natural occurrence is a blessing and gives benefit to human being such as menstruation in women. Menstruation is a unique and planned process, which involves three main phases; the menstrual phase, the follicular phase and the luteal phase. The objectives of this research were to study and relate the benefits of menses from the perspective of science and maqasid syariah. The research was conducted using descriptive literature review. It was found that hormonal changes, colour of menstrual blood and other physiochemical factors affect the normality of the menstrual cycle. Menstrual blood has been recognized as an antimicrobial agent against bacteria, especially E. coli and other Gram-negative bacteria. This coincided with the maqasid syariah of preserving soul since menstruation can also preserve women's health. In addition, previous study reported that menstrual blood has stem cells that can be used for clinical activities in the future. Menstruation can also be considered as maqasid syariah of protecting the next generation due to consistency of the fertile time' for pregnancy planning purpose. Islam prohibits the sexual intercourse with women who are in menstruation because women at this state normally have a prevalence of premenstrual symptoms (PMS) that involves health issues. Thus, menstruation from science point of view is in agreement with maqasid syariah.
