Is there any authentic hadith that stops menstruating women & the Junub (one who needs an obligatory bath) from entering the Masjid?
Jazakallah for your great service.
Sayyiduna ‘Aishah (radiyallahu’anha) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) said:
“…I do not permit the menstruating woman and those in janabat (those in need of a fard bath) from entering the masjid”
(Sunan Abi Dawud, hadith: 235)
This hadith is classified as sound (hasan) by Imam Ibnul Qattan and ‘Allamah Zayla’i (rahimahumallah)
(Nasbur Rayah, hadith: 808)
Hafiz Ibn Hajar (rahimahullah) says that hadith number 296 in Sahih Bukhari also supports this ruling.
(Fathul Bari, hadith: 296)
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
