Opinions:
Opinion FromOpinionExplanation
Imam Malik, Imam Shafi, MajorityIt is not permitted till she takes a bathIn the verse 2:222, "And when they have purified themselves.." , the implication is purification by water.
Also the form of the verb "tafhala" in the words "faidha tataharna" is applied to the act of the subject (mukallaf), not to the act of others.
Imam Abu HanifaIt is permitted if she has been pure beyond the maximum period of menstruation (10 days)In the verse 2:222, "And when they have purified themselves.." , the implication is purification by termination of menstruation.
Word with the form yafulna in the words "hatta yathurna" is stronger in the meaning of purity that results from termination of menstruation
Disagreement
Reasons:
The word "purification" in the usage of the Arabs and in the technical meaning is an equivocal word used for three meanings.
