    Default Started fasting then started period - break fast?

    Salams,

    I apologise if this has already been asked, but I have searched across the internet for quite a while and can't find a definitive answer.
    If a woman starts fasting at sehri, and then starts her period during that day, I know that the fast has to then be made up after Ramadan. I also know that for the rest of the duration of her period she can't fast. But is the woman meant to break the fast on the day her period started, or does she have to continue fasting on that day even though it is not valid?

    I have read many different opinions on this. I have always thought you have to continue fasting that day, but I just read somewhere that its actually haraam to do this.

    JazakhAllah

    During your fast when you menses begin then you should have something to eat. You should ofcourse avoid eating in a public place but have something to eat.

    and Allah Ta'ala Knows Best

    Is this belief the same throughout all schools of thought? Because all my life I was told you should keep fasting that day, and I was just wondering where this belief came from and what to tell my mum?

    Salaam,

    In this case the woman has to break her fast and make it up later if it occurs during her fast and if it occurs after the fast is valid and she should not make intention to fast the next day. Because the Prophet (sall Allâhu’ alayhi wa sallam) said: “Is it not the case that when she gets her period, she does not pray or fast?” Saheeh al-Bukhaari (304).

    “When a woman sees the blood of her period or nifaas (post-partum bleeding), her fast becomes invalid even if that is one moment before sunset. If a woman feels that her period has started but no blood comes out until after sunset, her fast is still valid. If the bleeding of a woman who is menstruating or in nifaas ceases at night and she has the intention of fasting, then dawn comes before she does ghusl, the view of all the scholars is that her fast is valid.” Taken from Al-Fath (4/148).

    Jazakhallah, may Allah reward you both.

    Also im praying a tasbeeh at the moment I'm intending to pray the first kalimah 70,000 times for a relative whos passed away - am I allowed to continue this whilst on my period?

    To not eat after the menses start is disliked since it would be in similarity with a person keeping a fast whilst the lady in menses cant keep it.

    You can pray that tasbeeh whilst in your period.

    Do remember me in your duas.

    and Allah Ta'ala Knows Best.

    Another mas'ala. If a woman made her fardh ghusal after fajr, does she have to remain like a fasting person or can she eat? Shukran.

    Hadiyah-e-Khawaateen
    (A Gift to Muslim Ladies)

    THE LAWS REGARDING ROZA (FAST)

    1. It is incorrect for a woman to keep fasts during the period of her Haidh. however, after she attains purity, she must make Qadha of the missed fasts, since fasts are not forgiven, even in the state of Haidh. [Bahishti Zewar, page 179]

    2. If a woman=s Haidh starts halfway during a fasting day, then her fast breaks and she has to compulsorily repeat that fast after she attains purity. [Ibid.]

    3. If a woman=s Haidh starts during a Nafl fast, then too she has to repeat that fast. [Ibid.]

    4. If a woman=s bleeding stops during the month of Ramadaan in the daytime, then she cannot eat or drink anything for the rest of the day. she has to compulsorily remain like a fasting person until the time of Iftaar (breaking of fast). However, this day will not be counted as a fast for her, she has to compulsorily repeat it after Ramadaan. [Bahishti Zewar, page 181]

    5. If a woman=s bleeding stopped in Ramadaan, after a full ten days and nights in the morning just before Subh-e-Saadiq, and she did not even have enough time to say AAllahu Akbar@, then too, the fast for that day is binding upon her, she has to compulsorily keep it. [Ibid.]

    6. If a woman=s bleeding stops (in Ramadaan) during the night-time, and she has enough time to just have a quick bath, but there is no time to even say AAllaahu Akbar@, then too the fast for that day is binding upon her. [Ibid.]

    7. If there was just enough time for her to have a quick bath (after the bleeding stopped), and not even a second more than that, but she did not take a bath, then too, she cannot break her fast, in fact, she has to compulsorily start her fast and bath later. (One must remember that Salaat without taking (Fardh) bath is not permissible, but a fast will be correct even if one is in need of a Fardh bath). [Ibid.]

    8. However, if a woman has a night left which is even less than that, i.e. she does not even have time to take a quick bath, then that morning=s fast will not be permissible for her to keep. But she must pass the entire day just like a fasting person and not eat or drink. After Ramadaan, she must compulsorily repeat that fast. [Ibid.]
