Istihadah

Q: What is the ruling on the blood that comes out of a woman outside the menstrual or post-partum period? Should she make up later for the days in which she experiences such blood during the daytime of Ramadan?


A: All praise be to Allah Alone, and peace and blessings be upon the Messenger of Allah, his family and Companions. (Part No. 5; Page No. 404)  If the blood referred to above comes out of her during the daytime in Ramadan, and it is not menstrual or postpartum blood, she must continue to observe Sawm (Fast) and Salah (Prayer), and must perform Wudu' (ablution) for each Salah. She does not have to make up later for the days in which she observed Sawm and Salah while having Istihadah (abnormal vaginal bleeding outside the menstrual or post-partum period).May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
