It is totally prohibited to make physical relation when the wife menstruates as Allah Almighty says: ?tay away from your wives when they menstruate and do not be close to them unless they get pure.?[Surah Baqrah: 222]
You must remorse for your sin and seek forgiveness from Allah, and you should spend 6 grams in charity, if you can. It is narrated by Abdullah ibn Abbas that the Prophet (saws) said about a person who had intercourse with his wife while she was menstruating: ?e should give one dinar or half a dinar in alms.?[Sunan Abi Dawud 264]
It is to note that touching the unclothed body form navel to knee is not allowed but it is allowed to sleep with wife and do foreplay touching the rest of the body during her monthly period as a hadith reads: Aisha (ra) narrates that ?he Prophet (saws) during the menses, used to order me to put on an Izar (dress worn below the waist) and used to fondle me.?[Sahih al-Bukhari 299]
And Allah knows the best
