Allah Ta’ala has created the human being as ‘ASHRAFUL MAKHLOOQAAT’ (the best of His creation). Males and females have been created differently with their own unique physical and emotional characteristics and needs. All these are signs of His evident power and greatness. A female’s first haidh (period/menstruation) is actually a transition or crossing over for her from childhood to adulthood. It is an important time in her life, because along with this change comes huge responsibilities.
Apart from physical changes (which take place inside our bodies), we undergo emotional changes (the way we feel), as well as mental changes (the way we understand things). It is, therefore, very important for us to prepare ourselves for this transformation.
