A man asks: my mother is sixty-five
years old and she has not had any
children for the last nineteen years.
Now, she has bleeding that started
three years ago and it seems to be
because of a certain disease.
Ramadan is about to begin, what
should she do?


All perfect praise be to Allah, The
Lord of the Worlds. I testify that
there is none worthy of worship
except Allah, and that Muhammad,
sallallaahu 'alyhi wa sallam, is His
slave and Messenger.

Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen said:
"This woman should abandon
praying and fasting for the same
number of days during which she
used to have her menstrual cycle. For
instance, if she used to have
menstruation during the first six
days of the month, she should
abandon praying and fasting during
these days, then perform Ghusl
(ritual bathing), and then pray and
fast. She should wash her private
parts well and apply a sanitary towel
then perform ablution and she should
do all this after the time of the
prayer is due (so she would not be
obligated to pray the previous
prayer). She should also do this if she
wants to pray voluntary prayers at
times other than the times of the
obligatory prayers. To alleviate
hardship, she is permitted to combine
two obligatory prayers so that she
could do this once for every two
prayers; she can pray Thuhr and ‘Asr
prayers with one ablution, then
Maghrib and ‘Ishaa’ prayers with one
ablution either as an early or
deferred combination. I stress that
she has to pray four Rak‘ahs for
Thuhr, ‘Asr and ‘Ishaa’, three
Rak‘ahs for Maghrib and two Rak‘ahs
for Fajr, which means that she does
not shorten prayers, contrary to what
some people think. She may only
combine Thuhr with ‘Asr and
Maghrib with ‘Ishaa’, whether early
or deferred. She may also pray
voluntary prayers with this same

Allah Knows best.
