Sex with wife after menstruation ends?

Among the mufradaat of the Hanafi fiqh is that if the menstruation of a woman stops at 10 days or after, her husband can have sexual intercourse with her before she makes ghusl.

 

The majority says you cannot until she makes ghusl.


What's interesting is that if we read the first portion of the following Verse with takhfiif

وَلاَ تَقْرَبُوهُنَّ حَتَّىَ يَطْهُرْنَ


Then the stopping of the blood of menstruation is enough for permissibility

 

If read with tashdiid

وَلاَ تَقْرَبُوهُنَّ حَتَّىَ يَطّهَرْنَ

 

Then it means that the woman needs to wash the place of menstruation, do Wuduu, or make ghusl.

 

All the scholars agree that the later portion of the Verse is read with tashdiid

فَإِذَا تَطَهَّرْنَ

 

And this supports the view that she must at the very least wash the place, do Wuduu, or make ghusl. This final view of an option between the three is that of Ibn Hazm
