Does Seeing Brown Discharge Whilst Fasting Invalidate the Fast?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by DarulIftaBirmingham

Answered by: Alimah Sumeyye Sofu


If my menstruation ends always on the seventh day but if by chance, I see brown discharge on the seventh day, will my roza be valid for the seventh day or from the next day when I saw clear white discharge? Please clarify this matter.

If you see brown discharge, your fast for the 7th day will not be counted. This is because brown is also counted as haidh bleeding.[1] Likewise, fasting in the state of haidh will not be permissible.[2]

Only if you had clear discharge or the brown discharge stopped before sehri time ended, then those days fasting will be valid.
