He, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, would comfort his wives when they felt unwell:
During the Farewell Hajj (pilgrimage) ‘Aa’ishah got her menses and started to cry. The Messenger of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, entered upon her and saw her crying and asked: “Why are you crying? Did you get your menses?” ‘Aa’ishah said: “Yes.”
He, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, replied: “This is something which Allah has decreed upon women. Do what a pilgrim does except for Tawaaf [circumambulating the Ka’bah].”
After she finished her menses and completed Hajj, she wanted to make up for the ‘Umrah (minor pilgrimage) that was interrupted by her menses, so he, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, commanded (her brother) ‘Abdur-Rahmaan to take her to the area of Tan’eem to assume Ihraam and then take her to perform the make-up ‘Umrah.
Men should be mindful of the state of the woman and the changes that happen to her due to menses and post-partum bleeding. Women usually become extra tired and they undergo various aches and pains and mood swings. When the husband shows consideration during these times in particular, the wife would consider it as a favor from him upon her, and would appreciate it.
