Fiqh of Fasting: Menstruation or Post Partum Bleeding Invalidates the Fast

5. Menstruation or Post Partum Bleeding

In this case the woman has to break her fast and make it up later if it occurs during her fast and if it occurs after the fast is valid and she should not make intention to fast the next day. Because the Prophet (sall Allâhu’ alayhi wa sallam) said: “Is it not the case that when she gets her period, she does not pray or fast?” Saheeh al-Bukhaari (304).

“When a woman sees the blood of her period or nifaas (post-partum bleeding), her fast becomes invalid even if that is one moment before sunset. If a woman feels that her period has started but no blood comes out until after sunset, her fast is still valid. If the bleeding of a woman who is menstruating or in nifaas ceases at night and she has the intention of fasting, then dawn comes before she does ghusl, the view of all the scholars is that her fast is valid.” Taken from Al-Fath (4/148). And I do not think this would apply to men as men usually do not go through menstruation cycles.

    my question is this- if a lady feels she has stopped menstration and during the day of the other day after ghusul,she finds some kind of brown discharge not really blood but like blood,is her fasting still valid or not.

    what if a man bleeds from the anus due to lack of fiber during fast

  5. 27 thoesaurus August 19, 2012 at 1:03 am

    it is hadith number 303 of sahih al bukhari (not 304)

    Narrated ‘Aisha: Fatima bint Abi Hubaish said to Allah’s Apostle, “O Allah’s Apostle! I do not become clean (from bleeding). Shall I give up my prayers?” Allah’s Apostle replied: “No, because it is from a blood vessel and not the menses. So when the real menses begins give up your prayers and when it (the period) has finished wash the blood off your body (take a bath) and offer your prayers.”
