Postponing Salaah Due to Fear of Haidh Continuing

Q: If the cycle is 5 days and the last bit of liquid came out before zuhr on the fifth day and the woman only made ghusl after esha because she was waiting to see that everything stopped completely, does she have to make qadaa for all of the salaah for that day?

A: She must make qadha for the salaah of that day.

ولو لم تغتسل ومضى عليها أدنى وقت الصلاة بقدر أن تقدر على الاغتسال والتحريمة حل وطؤها لأن الصلاة صارت دينا في ذمتها فطهرت حكما (الهداية 1/65)
