Seeing blood after having taken Ghusl

Q 1: When a woman, who has performed after-menstruation Ghusl (full ritual bath), goes to perform Wudu' (ablution) for Salah (Prayer) but finds some blood, must she perform Ghusl again or just Wudu' and then offer Salah? In another situation, a woman may find some blood one day after she has performed Ghusl and observed Salah. Must she perform Ghusl again?


A: When a woman who takes Ghusl after she has clearly seen the sign of Tuhr (purity from menses signaled by white discharge or complete cessation of bleeding) finds some blood, she should pay no attention to it. The state of purity and the Salah she performs are valid. If this blood lasts after the period is over, she should perform Wudu' for every single Salah (Part No. 4; Page No. 215) after the beginning of its due time. This blood is considered Istihadah (abnormal vaginal bleeding outside the menstrual) not menstruation as long as she has completed the number of days of her regular menstruation.
