Experiencing Istihadah during the daytime in Ramadan – Permanent Committee

June 21, 2015

The second question of Fatwa no. 6495

Q: What is the ruling on the blood that comes out of a woman outside the menstrual or post-partum period? Should she make up later for the days in which she experiences such blood during the daytime of Ramadan? 

A: All praise be to Allah Alone, and peace and blessings be upon the Messenger of Allah, his family and Companions.

If the blood referred to above comes out of her during the daytime in Ramadan and it is not menstrual blood or postpartum blood, she is obliged to observe Sawm (Fasting) and Salah (Prayer).

She must not stop observing Sawm or Salah, and she does not need to make up later for the days in which she observed Sawm and Salah while having Istihadah (abnormal vaginal bleeding outside the menstrual or post-partum period). 

May Allah grant us success! May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions!
