Questions pertaining to haidh

Q: I want to know about menstruation.

  1. Should a girl do prayers or not?
  2. If her menses is over while she is in Ramadhaan but however she miss sheri, should the one abstain from drinking and eating or she can continue to eat because she missed out sheri due to her menses.
  3. How would I know that it really is my menses because sometimes it is confusing and I myself do not know whether it menses or not. Therefore this creates doubt in myself and I do not know whether to do salaah or not?



  1. She cannot perform salaah or recite Qur’aan.
  2. If she was still in her menses when sehri had ended then she cannot fast.
  3. Explain what is your routine of the menses, when it is flowing or spotting.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
