Salaah for a woman who forgot her previous habit of haidh

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: If a woman is mutahayyarah (istihazaa forgot her habit) and she is doing ghusl for every salaah thereafter does she has to do qadha again for those salaahs. Can you explain the hukm of muthayaraah who had forgot everything (adat, tuhr, gap, etc.)?


A: No. If she is in doubt as to whether her haidh has ended or not, she will take ghusl for each salaah time and perform the salaah of the time. When the next salaah time comes, she will take ghusl and before performing the salaah of that time she will perform the last salaah again as a precaution.

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