Travelling in the state of haidh

Q: My question is regarding a woman in haidh. If a woman is in haidh and she is going to travel, will the conditions of salaah apply to her? When she reaches her destination, and she becomes tahirah, will she read qasr salaah or she will first have to travel a safr distance from there in order to read qasr or will she have to count the number of days she will be staying there from the day she becomes pure inorder to read qasr? Kindly send me the reference as well.


A: If she travels for 78km or more and throughout the journey she was in the state of haidh, then upon reaching the destination she will read complete Salaah. However, if during the journey she became pure and travelled for 78km or more while she was paak, upon reaching the destination she will perform qasr Salaah if she intends staying for less than 15 days at her destination.

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

طهرت الحائض وبقي لمقصدها يومان تتم في الصحيح كصبي بلغ بخلاف كافر أسلم.

قال الشامي: (قوله تتم في الصحيح) كذا في الظهيرية. قال ط وكأنه لسقوط الصلاة عنها فيما مضى لم يعتبر حكم السفر فيه فلما تأهلت للأداء اعتبر من وقته. (رد المحتار 2/135)
