Sufyan al-Thawri, Dawud al-ZahiriIt is obligatory upon him to avoid only the outlet of bloodThe verse 2:222 is general intended for the particular and we can reconcile the conflicting traditions by saying that narration from Aisha (RA) imply mere undesirability, while the other tradition of Aisha (RA) shows permissibility. They preferred this interpretation of theirs on the basis of the sunna indicating that no part of the body of the menstruating women is polluted, except for the outlet of blood, based on this narration of Aisha and also what is related from the Prophet (SAW) that the "A believer is never unclean"
