Khul` during menses

My friend asked her husband for a khul' while she was on her menses. Is the khul' valid?

the Fatwa Department Research Committee - chaired by Sheikh `Abd al-Wahhâb al-Turayrî

The khul` is valid.

Khul` is different than divorce. It can take place during a woman’s menstrual period. When Burayrah appealed to the Prophet (peace be upon him) for khul`, he did not ask her whether or not she was menstruating.

The condition that a man may not divorce his wife during her menstrual cycle is for her benefit, so she will not have a prolonged waiting period (`iddah). Since the khul`is by her request and for her benefit, it does not matter when she requests it.
