prayer of a Menstruating Woman
Abdel Aziz Ibn El Baz was asked the following
nine months pregnant woman suffers from vaginal
discharge continuously, therefore she stopped
prayers at the last month.
Can it be considered as prayer a
pardonment? What must she do?
In such a situation a woman must not stop
praying, she must continue to pray and do ablution
as a menstruating woman and she can keep a cotton
and perform prayers at their mean-time and she can
assemble together between Zuhr and Asr- Maqrib and
Allah says, “Fear Allah as possible as you
can” she must also compensate (complete) the
prayers which she had left before and to repent as

Mohammed bin Salih Elotheimeieen was asked:
a menstruating woman pray night prayer (Tahajud)
after mid-night by the same ablution she performed
for praying Ishaa?
No, because if the
first half of the night posses, then she must
renew the ablution, however, some scholar say that
it is not required for her to renew ablution and
this last opinion is the more correct.
Ibn Otheimeieen was asked the following question:
a woman who is affected by a continuous vaginal
discharge performs ablution for the obligatory
prayer, can she perform extra prayers (Nafl) or
read Quran by the same previous ablution till the
entering of the time of the rest prayer?
If she makes ablution for the prayer at the
mean time of the obligatory prayer, she can
perform extra prayers, read Quran till the
entering of the rest obligatory prayer.
