Q: My question for today is I did ghusul on 18th of May but from 23rd I am spotting blood and despite spotting blood I was still praying and on 26th I was fasting again despite spotting blood. I told one Muslim lady and she told me my fasting is makrooh so I had to open my fast. I didn’t pray on the 26th till the 28th but I did ghusul and I am fasting on the 29th but in the morning again I spotted blood so I just wanted to know am I allowed to fast and pray despite blood spotting or not?
A: If blood is seen after the haidh period, then it will be regarded as istihaaza. In the state of istihaazah a woman is regarded as a woman who is paak. Hence she may recite the Qur’an, keep nafil fasts and she will have to perform her fardh Salaah.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
