Dr. Mustafa Zayd, in his book النسخ في القرآن الكريم, volume 2, pages 123-125 (items 856-858), writes that some folk claimed that
was abrogated by the Sunna of the Prophet (PBUH) where he allowed making love with a menstruating wife but not intercourse.
Imaam Ahmad ibn Hanbal rejected that claim and said that the word المحيض
means the area of the menstrual blood. That is why God called it أذى
(harm). Thus, it's only that area that is to be avoided during love making, and that is exactly what the Sunna has been. Ibn Al-Jawzi agrees and so does Dr. Zayd. Ibn Hanbal adds that, even if the Sunna conflicted with the verse, the verse takes precedence, since "the abrogating must be equal in strength to the abrogated, and the Quran is stronger than the Sunna."
Dr. Zayd said that An-Nahhaas said that the verse abrogated what was in the law of the Children of Israel, who, based on a narration by Anas ibn Maalik, totally avoided their menstruating wives. Dr. Zayd says that is not abrogation, since the abrogated is not in Islam.
