Ghusal for a woman with a contraceptive patch

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: If a woman was using the patch as means of contraception for a whole year and didn’t realize her ghusl isn’t completed because the patch is impermeable to water:

1. Does she have to perform qadha of all her salaah and fardh saum?

2. Is her recitation of Qur-aan and khatams accepted?


A: If it is used as a treatment and can’t be removed then the ghusl was valid.

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