Women white discharge

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


Al-Muwatta Hadith 2.99

The Purity of a Menstruating Woman

Yahya related from Malik from AIqama ibn Abi AIqama that his mother, the maid servant of A'isha said, "Women used to send little boxes to A'isha with a piece of cotton cloth in each one on which was yellowness from menstrual blood, asking her about the prayer. She (Aisha (r.a.) said to them, 'Do not be hasty until you see a white discharge." By that she meant purity from menses.


The white discharge in most women normally signals the end of her menstruation period, thus she should purify herself with a full bath or ghusl and make herself available for prayer.


Malik and Muhammad al-Hassan recorded that women would send 'Aishah small boxes with yellow-stained cotton, and she would tell them, "Do not be in haste until you see the pure white cotton." If the discharge is yellow or muddy during the days of menstruation, it is to be considered as part of the menses. During other days, it is not regarded as such. Umm 'Atiyyah said, "After we were pure, we did not consider the yellow or muddy discharge to be anything."

Related by Abu Dawud and al-Bukhari.


The vast majority of the scholars and jurists are unanimous in their opinion that if the white (yellow, or muddy) discharge occurs at any other time other than the end of the menstruation period, it would not be considered an impurity; the believing woman may simply wash her private parts, wash the places on her body or clothes the discharge might have touched, do the ablution, and make herself available for prayer.


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.



Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
