Haidh Query

Question:

Assalaamu alaikum

A woman gets her menses for 10 days. Eg the first day her menses start at the time of zohr so upon the tenth day does she take a ghusal after zohr and prepare for the asr salaah

Answer:

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

The maximum period a woman can get haidh (menses) is 10 days. When your menses began at the time of Dhuhr, on the 10th day the menses will end just before the time of Dhuhr. Therefore, you will do ghusl (bath) whilst the time of Dhuhr sets in and read Dhuhr. The exact time of the days will be considered. If your menses commenced at 1 PM, then on the 10th day, the menses will terminate at the exact time when it commenced at 1 PM. [1]

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
