Woman getting haidh before the fast of Aashuraa


1. If a woman fully intends to fast on the day of Aashura, but haidh starts before it, will she get the reward of fasting on that day?

2. Will she get that reward even if she (being in haidh and knowing that had she been paak she would have abstained from it) eats on the day of Aashura?

3. What can a woman in haidh do to get that reward?


1. Insha Allah.

2. When she cannot fast then she is going to eat. There is no harm that she eats.

3. Her niyyat is enough.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
