What is your question?

Is it permissible for a person who is in the state of janaba or for a menstruating woman (haidh) to read the Holy Quran?

Answer

It is permissible for a person who is in the state of janaba (junub) or a menstruating woman to recite the Holy Quran except for the following four verses (it is not permissible for a woman in the state of nifas based on the obligatory precaution):

1. Verse 15, chapter 32
2. Verse 37, chapter 41
3. Verse 62, chapter 53
4. Verse 19, chapter 96

A person who reads these verses or listens to them to the end must perform a sajdah (prostrate). The validity of the prostration does not require them to face the qiblah or be in a state of purity, and recitation of any dhikr is sufficient.
