How to do ghusl-e-janabat 2-3 times daily

It has been 22 years of marriage and I need to have ghusl-e -janabat everyday for 2-3 times daily. Even I used to try to take bath but keeping my hair wet all day long is not possible at all. Sometimes I very enthusiastically used do it for 2-3 days but then I have severe migraine and thus stop. I am guilty of not saying my prayers regularly, which I used to before marriage. Having a relationship is the only thing which hinders me. Please tell me if there is any solution. I am helpless but hopeful as well that if my desire is to do sajda Allah will help me. I asked it from a couple of sources and they say that there is no way and I have to take whole ghusl whatever the case and our deen is not easy. I cant do it every day especially in winters.

Uterus removed, how does she pray?

Assalamu alaykum, I ask for a sister. She had her uterus surgically removed because she had tumor. Due to this, she does not get her menstruation anymore. Should she pray without any 'menstrual pause' like normal men do now, or can she follow her previous menstruating cycle.

Jazak Allahu khayran

Normal daily feminine discharge

Asalamualaykum. I would like to know why scholars say that normal daily vaginal discharge invalidates wudu for women. Is there anywhere in The Quran or a Hadith regarding this? I am not talking about istihadah (irregular non-menstrual bleeding). I am talking about the daily normal discharge that every woman gets. How can this invalidate wudu? It is like saliva, we all experience saliva on a daily basis and it does not invalidate fasting to swallow it, so how can normal daily discharge be a cause for invalidating wudu? It is a hardship for women to do wudu for every salah, especially when she is busy or away from her house. What about when she goes for Hajj or Umrah? It's even more difficult to renew wudu for every salah in those circumstances. I think male scholars don't fully understand this issue because they don't experience it themselves. It it just normal discharge that happens every day, so why does it invalidate wudu? I do not believe that Allah would put such a hardship on women. Please can you provide proof from The Quran or Hadith which clearly explains about a woman's normal daily discharge? Jazak Allah Khayr.

Covering of the face

I am not entirely convinced that the niqab is compulsory for I have heard otherwise from some sources including hadith.
I would like to be sure that it is compulsory before i go against my father's will by wearing it.

Among these sources is the hadith narrated by Aisha(ra) that Asma, the daughter of abu bakr, came to see the prophet (saw) wearing a thin dress. The prophet turned away and said to her, "oh Asma, when any woman reaches the age of puberty, she cannot reveal any part of her body except this and this." And he pointed to his hands and face.
Abu Dawud and Tirmidhi

And i heard from another source that there were some women in the prophet's(saw) lifetime who did not cover their faces yet he(saw) didn't say anything.

I do not find some of dalail given for Niqab convincing of which are:

"Oh Prophet SAW! Say to your wives, your daughters and the believing women that they should lower their jilbaabs unto them... (Surah Al-Ahzaab, verse 59)

Muhammad ibn Seereen RA said : ‘Ubaidah As-Salmaani RA asked regarding the commentary of this verse, thus he covered his face and head but exposed his left eye.

Ibn Abbas RA said : Allah has commanded the believing women that when they come out of their houses due to a necessity, they should cover their faces from top of their heads using their jilbaabs and only expose one eye.

In the verse quoted above it does not specify to cover the face but many of the sahaba could have interpreted it to include the face because of piety.

Why is it that many ulema have concluded that niqab is not obligatory including sheikh yusuf al qaradawi. This makes the whole matter very confusing.

What should i do if my parent's are of this opinion and won't allow me to wear niqab?

Platinum rings?


I have recently read a question on this site regarding women which states we are only able to wear rings made of real gold and silver.

I would just like to clarify- does that mean we are not able to wear rings made of platinum? And also is thr any ruling on stones like diamonds etc?

women normally get a yellowy discharge throughout the month.is wudhu broken whenever she gets it?



15th May 2012


Im new to this site, and im not too sure how to use it well so please forgive me if i make any mistakes.
I have recently started to become more practising in my deen and unfortunately my parents have not understood my change, i come from a family of very western thinkers and they do not why i have to cover. I have tried to explain to them with patience that as a muslim women i should be covering and i have even tried to explain that this is what Allah commands us to do in the quraan in several places, however they have recently also tried to make out that intermingling and talking to men is acceptable and there is nothing wrong with it. I have tried very hard to explain that we as muslims should abide by the laws of segregation, but i have had some difficulty..i was just wondering if you could help me explain to them or if you could give me any hadith or quraanic quotes that can back my arguement up..i would really appreciate it and inshAllah maybe they can understand where im coming from..or more importantly what Allah has commanded us to do.
JazakAllah khair for any replies.

Wearing perfume

In question #2174 a person has asked about using perfumes with alcohols. You had said that perfume with a certain type of alcohol is permissible but I have heard that women are not allowed to wear perfumes at all. Is this true?

White discharge

A woman prayed Maghrib salah, and then immediately afterwards began performing the two rak'ah sunnah salah. During the sunnat prayer, she felt that she has had white discharge. After finishing the sunnah, she checked her clothing and confirmed that there was indeed a discharge.

Does she also have to repeat her fard salah, despite her having no knowledge of any discharge at the time of performing it, or does she only have to repeat just that salat during which she intially felt the discharge?

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.
