Is Using Tampons Haram?


A tampon is a menstrual product made to be inserted into the vagina during menstruation in order to absorb blood and vaginal fluids. It is inserted internally, within the vaginal canal, unlike a pad. A tampon that has been properly inserted is held in place by the vagina and expands when menstrual blood is absorbed.


Is Using Tampons Haram?


According to what Allah says in the Glorious Quran, the Muslim is always commanded to stay far away from najasah (impure items) and stay purified.


وَثِيَابَكَ فَطَهِّرْ

Purify your garments.

{Quran 74:4}


Therefore the use of tampons is not haram or prohibited in Islam. According to several hadiths, using cotton to block the blood flow is acceptable. Since the majority of tampons on the market are made of cotton, rayon, or a combination of rayon and cotton.


Quran Verse on Menstruation


وَيَسْـَٔلُونَكَ عَنِ ٱلْمَحِيضِ ۖ قُلْ هُوَ أَذًى فَٱعْتَزِلُوا۟ ٱلنِّسَآءَ فِى ٱلْمَحِيضِ ۖ وَلَا تَقْرَبُوهُنَّ حَتَّىٰ يَطْهُرْنَ ۖ فَإِذَا تَطَهَّرْنَ فَأْتُوهُنَّ مِنْ حَيْثُ أَمَرَكُمُ ٱللَّهُ ۚ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ يُحِبُّ ٱلتَّوَّٰبِينَ وَيُحِبُّ ٱلْمُتَطَهِّرِينَ


And they ask you about menstruation. Say, "It is harm, so keep away from wives during menstruation. And do not approach them until they are pure. And when they have purified themselves, then come to them from where Allah has ordained for you. Indeed, Allah loves those who are constantly repentant and loves those who purify themselves."


{Quran 2:222}

Hadith on Women Menstruating


We should refer to the tampons that ladies typically use when discussing these ones. When a woman was menstruating during the time of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him), she would wear certain clothing.


(297) Narrated Um Salama: While I was laying with the Prophet under a single woolen sheet, I got the menses. I slipped away and put on the clothes for menses. He said, "Have you got "Nifas" (menses)?" I replied, "Yes." He then called me and made me lie with him under the same sheet.


{Sahih Bukhari}




Therefore, it is wrong to claim that wearing tampons is prohibited in Islam.
