I came across something today which I had never heard before. I had heard that menstruating women and/or ritually impure (those who have had sexual intercourse and subsequently have not bathed) individuals couldnt enter the Mosque prayer area, they can’t perform salah, they can’t read Quran (I’ve never been clear on this, is it that they – menstruating women I’m asking about specifically can’t recite/read Quran at all, or just can’t touch the Quran?) to name but a few conditions.

But I had never heard that an impure person couldnt be around, with or near a dying person. This was mentioned fleetingly today and the moment it was uttered I refused to believe it. I strongly dont think its true. I’ve never come across this before.

Has anyone else?
