Asslamaikum warahmtullah wabarakatohu

Where it is stated that women are allowed to have their ears pierced, i understand the prophets wives wore earings, but there is no mention that their ears were pierced to accomodate these.
Also what is the status on nose piercings as some scholars say it is allowed while others say it is not allowed.

Confusing Haiz


I got paak from a normal period on 22nd August,2008.

Then during Ramadaan 2008, i saw a bit of brownish discharge on 26th September at 6.30 pm so i carried on with my roza but missed Asar, Maghrib and Isha.

Then, because no other normal period symptoms were apparent, i fasted the next day,27th, and prayed all five salaah.

The next day, 28th, again i saw brownish discharge at 6.15pm so i missed Asar, Maghrib and Isha. Again i didnt break my fast in case it wasnt haiz.

I then waited till 30th September and because i hadnt seen anything at all i finally had a bath and started to pray namaaz.

During this whole period in my heart i felt it wasnt haiz but wasnt sure what to do.

A few weeks later i found out i was pregnant and my scan showed the first day of my pregnancy was the 20th September- therefore the few days i had spotting, was whilst i was pregnant.

I appreciate this is a confusing mas'ala but i am in desperate need of a solution so i can determine

1) How many, if any, Qaza rozas i need to keep

2) How many, if any, qaza salah i need to pray.

Jazakallah very much for your time.
May you all br e rewarded well for your efforts for the ummah.

if one is raped or has committed zina is she allowed to have abortion as she knows that life for her is difficult as she will have to face the society and her family members, who most likely will threaten to disown her?or can she try other possibilities to loose the child?if not what should she do in a situation like that? or can she give birth but have the baby adopted?

i am 49 years old
i have irregular periods but i basically know most rules regarding maximum days of period etc
my discharge is the problem both at the beginning when i am about to start and towards the end of my period the discharge is a more creamy colour
for instance today (my 9th day of periods starting) the discharge is not brown or pink but a creamy colour which then later days will become more whitish/yellow colour(when dry). this creamy colour will dry to a very pale beige/cream colour. can i read my namaz or do i still wait for a white discharge ?

Brown/yellow vaginal discharge after habitual days of haidh

Respected Mufti Sahab,

As-Salaamu Alaikum,

Innal Allaha la yastahyee minal Haq!

My habit is of bleeding 8 days every month. This time I had a white discharge on the 7th day of the month. Thinking that I had attained purity, I bathed and started praying but soon after on the same day [i.e. 7th day] I saw some dark brown discharge. Since my habit was that of 8 days, I stopped praying and therefore, did not fast and pray on the 8th day. However, at night of the 8th day, in accordance with my habit, without waiting to see a white discharge, I bathed and prayed the Isha salah. Then I fasted and prayed on the 9th day, but again saw some light brown discharge at 'asr time. Now, I am a bit confused. Should I consider this haidh or istihadah?

I am thinking that this is what I should do. Please correct me, if this is not the right approach and advise me otherwise. I should stop praying and fasting until the tenth day. If I have the brown/non-white discharge on the 11th day also, then that would mean I am suffering from istihadah. Therefore, I should take the first 8 days as haidh, in acc to my habit and make up prayers/fast for the 9th and 10th day. If this is the case, then does my fast that I kept and prayers that I prayed on the 9th day count at all, or do I have to repeat them anyways?
Wa Salaam

Free mixing

jazakallah for your time and effort
may Allah be pleased with you

Women fasting

If a woman fasted out of Ramadhan (her qaza fasts) and she starts her monthly period during the day, can she eat and drink for the rest of the day???
9th September 2008


assalamu alaykum ww
insha'allah i intend to get married in a couple of years. for the first few years we will live with his family, and then if resourses permit , move out. i have absolutely no problem with this.
however, i wear hijab and due to the fact that my fiance is an alim,he expects me to do hijab from his brothers despite the fact that we'll be living together, eating together etc. as you can imagine this is going to be really hard for me because i will constantly have to be in hijab, even in front of him most of the time...
therefore i just wanted to clarify whether it is necessary to observe full pardah in front of them..if there is no fear of fitnah, then would it not be sufficient for me to cover everything apart from my face?

Travelling whilst on periods.

I have read on another 'question and answer' site that women are not regarded as travelling if they are on a period. Consequently when they take a bath to become pure once they reach their destination, they have to pray full salaat.

I will be travelling to the middle east with my family and am likely to still be on my periods on the journey there, but will probably finish once I get there. My husband will be able to pray qasr, but not me. Why is this so?

Speaking to non-mahram shop vendors

Assalaamu alaikum

When a women is out due to necessity to do shopping for the family, is it forbidden for her to answer the salaam of a non mahram shop keeper she comes into contact with? Also, how should one limit their speech when out and about in situations where the voice must be used?

Salaah and wudhu

Assalamu Alaikum,

I have a problem. Alhamdulillah I am doing my Salaah now with right wudhu and everything InshAllah, but before when I did Salaah for a period of maybe one or two months (I'm not sure) I wasn't completely sure if I was a ma'thur and I was confused on the ruling regarding discharge and the validity of one's wudhu. Thus when I was away from home and performing Dhuhr Salaah, due to the diffiulty in performing Istinjaa, I just did wudhu and did Salaah. After some time of learning, I realised that the area soiled must be cleaned and wudhu is invalidated if discharge is visible if it is not clear. Thus my question is: I s my salaah valid on the basis hat I performed my wudhu but did not do istinjaa or cean my clothes. I was not 100% at time perhps if I experienced discharge and if I did whther it was clear, but due to my normal experience I can say that I normally would have discharge If I didn't perform istinjaa for that period of timke when I was away from home.

Also I am not sure if this occured any time after, i.e I have normally always performed my Salaah Alhamdulillah, but apart from that period of time stated above I'm not sure if there has been similar times when my wudhu was not propper perhaps? Should I leave this doubt or re-do my Salaah?

Jazkallah Khair and May Allah Reward you InshAllah!

Masalla with regards to discharge and fasting

Due to a contraceptive method used, I am not getting my normal menses. However, I do have discharge throughout the month , and this can often be discoloured ie yellow in colour. Should I refrain from praying Salaat while experiencing such discharge during my Haidh time? I have been advised to not pray, however it is causing me great anxiety during the month of Ramadhaan as it seems I'm missing my fast due to something I'm not even sure of, as at times I will only get a small spot of discoloured discharge- and then nothing for 3-4 days, where upon I will take ghusl, make up for Salaats missed and then a few days later within my ten days I wil again get a small spotting. I am really confused, please advise.

Asaaamu alaikum,

i would like to know where exactly has it been mentioned in the quran or hadith that it is compulsary for women to observe niqab? from what i have gathered that the scolars have recently decided for it be compulsary on a woman.
