Salaah that was missed due to calculating one’s haidh incorrectly

Q: I have just found out that I calculated my haidh incorrectly for many months due to regarding a normal discharge to be blood. Do I have to offer qadha salaah for all these months? And what is the status of the salaah I offered while I was impure? Please advise.



1. If you were not in the state of haidh and you did not perform your Salaah considering yourself being in the state of haidh, then you will have to make qadha of all those Salaah.

2. It is impermissible for a woman to perform Salaah in the state of haidh. Hence Salaah performed in the state of haidh is invalid.

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