Menstruation Query



Dear Mufti saheb

If a women started her period and after 6 days it ended, thereafter she decided to keep one of her missed fasts on the 10th day of her period, and she started to bleed again. Does she have to do ghusl again and is her fast accepted?

Jazakallah Khair


In the name of Allāh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-raḥmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

Respected Sister

The first 6 days will be regarded to be haid and the remaining days will be regarded as Istihadhah,[1] hence in that case there would be no need to repeat the Ghusl [2]and the fast.[3]

And Allah Ta‘ala knows best
