Abstract
The period that a woman goes through during pregnancy, menstruation and puerperium is a special period in which the woman’s status is physically disturbed because of the effect that this has on her health as it is medically proven by experience. Likewise, she goes through a special physiological situation, in which the level of hormones changes, as stated by psychiatry experts. Therefore, we believe that the Almighty Allah has singled out women for the situations they go through with specific texts and provisions in Islamic legislation, which resulted in an alleviation of the provisions of worship and transactions for women in that period. This proves the wisdom of the divine providence and how Allah singled women out with the provisions in which the sharia objectives (maqasid) are manifested by taking into account their nature and the physical and psychological changes that occur to them. Therefore, Sharia, on the one hand, has its own approach in this case, and, on the other hand, psychiatry experts have their own scientific reports regarding women. Thus, it is important to define the relationship between the sharia objectives related to the pregnancy, menstruation, puerperium, and psychiatric reports, and determine how to use it in formulating sharia rulings. This relationship is less researched and there are less efforts to show the relationship and the consequences of its employment at the sharia and scientific levels, which in turn increases the importance of this research. This research adopts the functional, inductive and documentary method, as it searches for the relationship between two sciences in order to document their evidence sharing and address the issues common between them. The researcher, according to this methodology, can prove the relationship, define it, and then determine the impact of this relationship and how to employ it. This research is also a positive and valuable scientific step in stimulating the renewal of the mechanism of scientific research in Islamic jurisprudence, especially considering the sciences that share intertwined issues as well as use the benefit of empirical science.
