Menstruation and Post-Natal bleeding
How to Do Ghusl after PeriodI do ghusl following menses as follows: 1- I form the intention to purify myself in my heart, without uttering it out loud. 2- I start by standing beneath the shower and letting the water flow all over my body. 3- I wash my entire body using a loofah and soap, including the private parts. 4- I wash my head using shampoo 5- After that I rinse all traces of soap and shampoo from my body and I let the water flow three times over the right side of my body and three times over the left side 6- Then I do wudu. Recently I found out that I am not following the correct steps of ghusl. I hope that you can advise me whether the ghusl I have been doing all these years as described above is wrong or correct… If it is wrong, then I hope you can tell me what I should do to correct this mistake which I have done repeatedly for years. Are my prayers and fasts during this time invalid and not accepted? If that is the case, what can I do to set things straight? I also hope that you can tell me the correct way of doing ghusl in the case of menses and janabah.
Her nifaas ended before forty days but she did not pray; does she have to make up the prayers?I am a woman who had two weeks of nifaas. For seven days I did not see any blood, but I did not pray yet because I forgot that, even though I know that a woman should pray when she is pure (not menstruating or bleeding following childbirth). But I did not think of that. I said to myself: I will pray after forty days. Do I have to make up those seven days or not?.
She does ghusl after her menses then she sees a brownish dischargeI am a woman who has continuous yellowish discharge. And I am of those who do not have a sign of tuhr (purity of menstruation). And I do not know how to make sure of my tuhr in that case. My period is seven days (obvious blood for 7 days). After this I find brownish and yellowish discharge. My question is: If the brownish discharge disappears and the yellowish remains, shall I consider it menstruation or my normal yellowish continuous discharge? As sometimes the brownish discharge disappears for a day and the yellowish one remains, so I make ghusl and pray, then the brownish comes out again sometimes once a day. This puts me in great confusion. Shall I repeat ghusl or not?.
If a woman’s period ends before Fajr, she should pray Maghrib and ‘Isha’If my period ends and I do ghusl at night, for example, how should I pray? Should I pray ‘Isha’ only, or ‘Isha’ and Maghrib, or the prayers of the entire day? Please note that I do not see the white discharge; rather I wait for one day to find out whether the bleeding has stopped.
Her period came before she did her ‘umrahMy wife and I went to Makkah two days ago to perform Hajj, and in the airplane we intended to enter ihraam for ‘Umrah. When we reached Makkah, we went to the hotel to put our luggage there, and after that my wife found out that her period had come when we reached the hotel. What is the ruling on that? Does she have to offer a ransom (fidyah)? What is the value of the fidyah?.
She thought that she was in nifaas following a miscarriage so she did not fast or prayForty days had passed since I miscarried the foetus in my womb, and the pregnancy had not lasted more than two and a half months. That coincided with the month of Ramadan, then I did not pray or fast. I did not know anything about Islamic matters, but after that I found out that I was not in nifaas. Should I make up the prayers and fasts that I missed? Now I am confused and do not know what I should do.
She thought that the bleeding that results from an abortion was nifaas so she broke her fastOne day in Ramadaan I went to the hospital to abort a pregnancy that had lasted less than three months. I took some medicine, and after the abortion I ate some food because I thought that it was permissible for me to eat. But after I went back home I researched on the internet and I found out that I should have fasted and prayed, because that bleeding was irregular bleeding. So I made up the day I had missed after Ramadaan ended. Is what I did sufficient or what do I have to do?.
She saw blood after she had done ghusl following menses and had intercourse with her husband. What should they do?A man copulated his wife after she made ghusl following menstruation. On the same day and before she made ghusl of janaba (impurity after intercourse) she found blood. It is very rare for her to have longer period than normal. Did he copulate her while she is still menstruating? If so, then how should they expiate? Should the wife make ghusl to clear the impurity of intercourse, or can she wait till the end of the day so that she can make ghusl to clear the impurity of both intercourse and menstruation? Are they sinful? Bear in mind that she was sure that her period stopped, she made ghusl and prayed.

She was not certain that her period had ended, and she prayed and fastedI did ghusl at night, at the time of sahoor, because I knew that my period would end that day, and I ate sahoor and I fasted and prayed as well. Nothing came out of me during the time from Fajr until the adhaan of Maghrib, and when I wanted to go and pray, I discovered that the period had ended. Are my fasting and prayers valid?.
She bled after having a coil inserted after her nifaas endedMy postnatal bleeding has stopped ten days before Ramadan started. I visited the doctor and she inserted coil two days before Ramadan.

Her period comes regularly but the bleeding stops for half a day or a day at the beginning and endMy wife gets her period regularly, but it starts with a little bleeding, which then stops for half a day or a full day. The same thing happens at the end of her period. When should she stop fasting and praying and when should she resume?.
Her period became irregular because of taking pills to prevent menstruation; what should she do about prayer and fasting?A few years ago, a few months after I reached puberty, my family decided to go for Hajj. My period began a few days before the date of travel, so my mother and I were asked to take pills to stop our menses, and I did that. Since that time, my period has not been regular, to the extent that it does not come for several months, and sometimes when it starts it does not stop. My period began ten or eleven days before Ramadan this year, then I did ghusl after approximately nine days, then I noticed that it began again after two days. My grandmother told me not to fast at the beginning of Ramadan, and I did not fast the first two days of the month, then I did ghusl and fasted on the third day, even though the bleeding was still ongoing. That is because I think I read a hadith in which the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) allowed a woman to pray after wrapping herself in cotton or heavy cloth, because it was not menstrual bleeding. I hope you can explain to me clearly what I should do.
