Home Women's Issues Shar‘ee Rulings and Etiquettes

Introduction

Islam is a perfect deen. Part of the perfection of Islam is that together with the general obligations that apply to everyone, many laws are specific to males or females, keeping in mind each one’s specific roles in life, their physiological differences and other unique characteristics. Thus the laws pertaining to males and females differ in many aspects, among which are the postures of salaah, etc. Some of these rulings are briefly discussed hereunder.

A: She should not take a ghusl (bath) or begin offering any salaah after the duration of her normal habit. Rather, she will wait until the bleeding stops. If she stops bleeding within ten days and ten nights (from the time her bleeding commenced) then the salaahs for all these days will be excused and she will not have to offer any qadha salaah. Her norm will now be considered to have changed and all the days will be considered as haidh.

A: Bleeding experienced by a female who is nine years and older will be regarded as haidh. A girl below the age of nine does not menstruate. If such a girl notices blood, it is bleeding due to some illness and will be considered as istihaadhah (dysfunctional uterine bleeding), not menstruation.

 

Q: How will a woman calculate her haidh in the following scenario: She bleeds for three days and then does not see blood for two days. Then, she bleeds for one day.

 A: In such a situation, all six days will be considered as haidh (menstruation). The ruling in such situations is that if a day or more of purity falls within the ten-day period of menstruation, it will be treated as continuously flowing blood. Therefore, all six days will be considered as haidh.
