Brown Discharge During Days Of Haydh


Recommended Posts



If a woman menstruate for 7 days: 3 days heaving bleeding, 2 days medium/light bleeding and 2 days light brown discharge.


1. Does the woman have to wait until the brown discharge has stopped/cleared completely before performing ghusl and praying salah?



2. If the discharge is only noticeable when wiped with a tissue, does she still have to wait for the brown discharge to disappear before performing ghusl?





Muhtaram / Muhtaramah


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

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




1.The brown discharge a woman sees during her days of menstruation will also be regarded as Haidh (menstruation). Hence, she should wait for the discharge to terminate, thereafter she should have a Gusul (complete bath) and perform Salāh.

(Hāshiyatut Tahtāwi, Pg.139, Ilmiyyah)[1]


(Tātārkhāniyyah, Vol.1, Pg.330, Idāratul Qurān)



2. Yes. Once the discharge has terminated totally, then only she should have a bath.


And Allah knows best
