Menstruation and Post-Natal bleeding
Can ghusl from janaabah also count as ghusl following menses and vice versa?If I believed that the yellowish discharge was istihaadah [non-menstrual discharge] and I prayed and did not repeat my ghusl, then after that I found out that the yellowish discharge is part of the menses if it follows on directly from it, and I had done ghusl after that from janaabah [impurity following intercourse], does the ghusl from janaabah also count [as ghusl following menses]?
How to distinguish between yellowish discharge and ordinary secretions?How can I distinguish between yellowish discharge and ordinary vaginal secretions, if they follow on directly from menses? Or is it the case that everything that has a yellowish colour comes under the heading of yellowish discharge, even if it is white with the slightest tinge of yellow, and it means that I cannot fast or pray if it follows on directly from menses? Sometimes I see a white discharge, but I shine a white light on it so that I can be sure, and I see that it has a very slight yellowish tinge. Is this the yellowish discharge, or can it be likened to anything by means of which I can distinguish it?
What should a menstruating woman do when there is an eclipse?I am a woman. What should I do if I attend the eclipse prayer and I have a shar‘i excuse (for not praying)?
The post-partum bleeding (nifaas) stopped, then she saw some drops of blood; what is the ruling on her fasting in that case?I give birth in the month of Sha‘baan, then I got sick, and the blood of nifaas only lasted for three days, then it stopped, so I did ghusl and prayed. No blood came out at all until the month of Sha‘baan ended and Ramadan began, and after one week of Ramadan had passed, the doctor prescribed an antibiotic for me, so I was fasting but there was no bleeding during the day; only a few drops appeared before Maghrib. This continued for the rest of the month of Ramadan, and I could not tell whether I had become pure or not, but I fasted the entire month. Should I repeat the fast or not?
Does blood in the vagina come under the same ruling as menstrual blood even though it has not yet come out?Yesterday my period was due, so this morning I inserted a piece of cotton and it came out with the traces of blood on it, so I did not fast, and I continued like that all day. Every time I put in a piece of cotton, I saw blood, but it did not come out until after ‘Isha’. What is the ruling on my breaking the fast when there was blood inside that had not come out? I mean that if I put a piece of cotton inside, it would come out with blood on it, but if I did not do that, no blood came out onto my clothes. Is it regarded as menses, and what is the ruling on my breaking the fast and not praying at that time?
Can We Touch Private Parts during Fasting?I am a young man and got married during the month of Ramadan. When my wife has her period, she asks me to masturbate her with my hand when I am fasting. Is this permissible, so long as I avoid touching the menstrual blood which is impure?
Her period is not regularWe hv to stop& start praying based on characteristics of blood, when hving irregular bleeding. Im worried abt whether I can distinguish between the two bloods properly,perhaps due to waswas In my normal menstrual cycles i usually get brown discharge (that seem like irregular bleeding) at the start &end of menses. Its only perhaps for the first 2-4 days of menses tht the blood has clear characteristic of menses. Brown discharge is counted as menses if connected to menses, so I wait for tht to end Howeva, when hving irregular bleeding (I had abt 2weeks purity gap before bleeding occured, bt coz its not properly flowing blood& didnt look like menses even after a weak,so i started prayers again 1) am I right to do so? &shal I do the prayers I missed in tht week? 2) my time of menses is abt to start. If on due date, blood still looked like irregular, do I pray till I dnt see it look like menses? 3) I get brown discharge at start &end of normal menses. I cnt recall how long the discharge lasts before/after the heavy flow, but menses overall lasts abt 7-10days. if ur answer is dnt pray for amount of days ur menses usually last for (including the days of brown discharge I get with menses) then how do I work out whether to stop praying for 7 days, 8, 9 or more, coz its not always the same amount of days My last menses started on 11 May (or 10th, not sure) and ended 17 or 18(not sure when exactly) but I had ghusl on 18th. Plz advice me, based on my specific menstrual cycle.
She is asking how she can teach her mother and sister about the rulings on tahaarah (purification)My question is about my little sister. When her menstruations start, should I be the one to tell her about ghusl and stuff (cause Im pretty sure that my mom doesn't know about that stuff ...)? And should I explain that stuff to my mom also? It would be really akward cause I'm the child and she is the mom.. How could I talk them about it? Also I want to ask: If someones menstruations haven't started yet, but she's having vaginal discharge, should she do ghusl? Because she would have to do it many times a day because of it.
She took birth control pills and her periods stopped; should she pray and fast?The use of birth control pills can cause a women to stop having her monthly periods/menstruation all together till she stops using the pills. In such circumstances what is the ruling for her on praying and fasting? Does she continue praying without any breaks? The sister is taking the pills for a legitimate reason and not because she doesnt like menstruation.
Her period will end when she is on her way to Makkah but she cannot do ghuslIf I am going to go for ‘umrah in Ramadan by bus, with an organised group, and I am menstruating, and my period ends when I am on the road, is it permissible for me to do tayammum for prayer until I reach the miqaat? Because it is difficult to do ghusl in the washrooms on the road, because they are not sanitary and do not have any hot water, and I cannot hold up the group, because it is so crowded at the washrooms. If it is permissible to do tayammum, can I pray with tayammum or should I do wudoo’ too? Should I do tayammum for every prayer or in the case of minor impurity? When I reach Makkah, is it permissible for me to pray Taraweeh before doing ‘umrah, and to delay ‘umrah until there is less crowding?
She prays and fasts when there is brownish or yellowish discharge at the time of her period; what should she do?I know that the yellowish and brownish discharge is hayd (menses) if it appears during the time of the period, or if it is connected to the number of days of the period, in the sense that no tuhr (sign of purity) is seen during that time. My question is: when I first reached puberty, I did not count the yellowish discharge as menses at all, out of ignorance, and I do not even remember whether I saw it or not, but I did not have anyone to teach me the rulings on menses. So I think that I may have counted the number of days wrong, because I did not count the yellowish discharge as menses at all. Is it permissible for me to count the number of days? If the answer is yes, then how should I count the number of days of the period? Please do not tell me that I should count the yellowish and brownish discharge as menses at the time when it is possible for that to be the case, because I think that this view opens the door to waswasah (whispers from the Shaytaan).
She saw a brownish discharge on the day after her had period ended and she had done ghusl, and she did not pay any attention to it, then she did another ghusl, and now she is not sure whether her ghusl and prayer were validDuring the month of Ramadan, I got my monthly period, which lasted for five days. At dawn on the sixth day, I did ghusl so that I could fast. That was on September 30. I do not remember whether I saw the tuhr (white discharge signalling the end of menses) or not, because I was thinking so much that I forgot. What matters is that at 8 o’clock in the morning I did wudoo’ so that I could pray Duha, and I saw a light reddish-brown colour. I thought that it was the brownish discharge because I have read something about its description, and I did not pay any further attention to it, and I completed the fast of that day. Please note that I did not see anything else after that, and the following day was ‘Eid. I did ghusl for ‘Eid as usual, without any intention of purification. My question is: If I was still impure on that day, then is the ghusl I did on the day of ‘Eid valid, or were my prayer, fasting and other acts of worship in the months of Shawwaal invalid, until the menses of Dhu’l-Qa‘dah came?
Ruling on a woman who leads her relatives in praying Taraweeh when she is menstruating, and ruling on the prayer of those who prayed behind herI am a girl, and when I got my monthly period for the first time, I was very shy, so I did not refrain from praying, and I prayed at the time of my period. That is because I was very shy, lest my family asked me, Why aren’t you praying? On a number of occasions, I felt very shy in front of my sisters, and sometimes I would lead them in praying Taraweeh. All of that was because of extreme shyness. What is the ruling on that? Do I have to offer any expiation?
She is confused about purity following menses; what should she do?When I used to get my period for a number of years, sometimes I would become pure (the period would end), then I would get another period. And sometimes I would not know that the period had ended (I was confused about it), and I would ask my mother: has my period ended or not? And I used to get yellowish secretions, and I would wait until the yellow disappeared and became white, before doing ghusl, but sometimes the white discharge would not come, so I would wait up to 15 days, then do ghusl. That is because my mother asked a shaykh and he told her this, and said to her: She should not do ghusl until she sees the white discharge. But a long time after that, my sister asked me about the usual secretions when the period ends, and I told her that they are yellowish and not white. She said to me: you have to do ghusl when you get the usual secretions that you get during the period of purity (i.e., yellowish secretions). So I started to do that. Do I have to make up the previous prayers? How can I know how many they were? And how can I make them up? Please note that I suffer a severe degree of waswaas (whispers from the Shaytaan) and I am also afraid that I may have done ghusl when I was still menstruating, and I think of making up these prayers, but I am not sure. I am very worried and I pray for guidance. I am also afraid that when I first reached puberty, I did not make up for the times when I got my period and I had not prayed yet, such as when it came to me at the time of ‘Asr but I had not prayed it yet. But I am not sure. Should I make up these prayers, or how can I make them up?
Is it permissible for a menstruating woman to touch the colour-coded tajweed Mushaf?I want to ask about the ruling on touching the colour-coded tajweed Mushaf, for a woman who is menstruating. I am memorising the Qur’an at a Qur’an memorization school, and my monthly period lasts for ten days. Is it permissible for me to touch the tajweed Mushaf in which the rules of recitation are highlighted in different colours, along with an explanation of the meaning of these colours at the bottom of each page, and at the side of the pages there is an explanation of some words. Is this format regarded as a book of Tafseer, and can I touch it without a barrier during my menses? Because I heard that one can touch a book of tafseer without a barrier.
Ruling on taking birth control pills before the farewell tawaafI am going for Hajj, by Allah’s leave, and my monthly period will come on the 10th (of Dhu’l-Hijjah). I am going to take birth control pills so that I will be able to do tawaaf al-ifaadah. My question is: Is it permissible to stop taking the pills after tawaaf for fear of them causing harm, because I am unmarried, or do I have to keep taking them until the farewell tawaaf?
She saw menstrual blood after breaking the fast, but she is not sure whether it came before or after breaking the fastOne day during Ramadan, shortly after breaking the fast, I saw menstrual blood, but I do not know whether my period began before breaking the fast or after. Do I have to make up the fast of that day or not?
With regard to menses, is it the period pain or the bleeding that counts as the signal to stop praying and fasting?My wife is asking whether a woman is obliged to fast when she feels any of the signs of menses, such as dizziness, feeling sick, and pain in the abdomen, and even seeing blood by inserting a piece of cotton into the vagina, but no blood is coming out; rather she feels all of the symptoms for two or three days, then the bleeding starts.
She experiences spotting and strongly hates menstruationI am a 14 year old girl and latley i have been having problems with my period. I keep spotting small amounts of blood on my underwear even though it was over 1 or more weeks ago. I am getting really mad and frustrated, how am i supposed to pray when every couple days i see small amounts?

How do i clean that white stuff after the period from my system without having to insert my finger because it really hurts Please replie as fast as you can, and i dont understand arabic so can you make some of the words clear.
Ruling on the yellowish brownish discharge that may appear before, during and after mensesAt the beginning of my monthly period I usually get a yellowish brown discharge that lasts for between one and three days, after which the bleeding starts. Are these days during which this brownish discharge comes regarded as part of the menses or not? At the end of the period, after the bleeding, stops I get some brown or black discharge; is this regarded as part of the menses too, or not?.
