Do a woman exempted from prayer which falls under her period time.

Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,

As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)


One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

Do a woman exempted from prayer which falls under her period time. I mean she has to compelete all her prayers after this time or she will be exempted. 


(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)




Menses and prayer

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 none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 1.327 Narrated by Aisha

The Prophet (saws) said to me, "Give up the prayer when your menses begin and when it has finished, wash the blood off your body (take a ‘ghus’ or full bath) and start praying."


Hadrat Aisha (r.a.) said: "When we would have our menses during the lifetime of the Prophet (saws), we were ordered to make up the days of fasting that we had missed but were not ordered to make up the prayers that we had missed.”

Related by Bukhari and Muslim.


The believing woman is indeed exempted from offering her prayers during her period of menses in Shariah, nor is she required or obligated in the least to make them up at a later date; but she is obligated to make up the missed days of her obligatory fasts of Ramadan due to her menstruation.


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s 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,
