Q: I would like to know the mas’ala on being a mazoor. A woman considers herself a mazoor due to continuos discharge. She will be going for umrah and would like to insert a tampon to make it easier for her so that she does not have to make wudu for every salaah. My question is:

1. When must she insert her tampon so that she does not have to make a new wudu for every salaah?

2. If she inserts a tampon, will she then not be considered a mazoor?

3. After removing the tampon, does she again consider herself as a mazoor?



1. Insert it and then make wudhu.

2. If there was no discharge in the entire duration of a salaah time then she will not be mazoor.

3. If the same previous condition prevails then she will consider herself as mazoor.

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