A woman with vaginal bleeding outside the menstrual period making up for fasting

Question:

I have been suffering from vaginal bleeding outside the menstrual period for a long time now, and I have some days to make up for from last Ramadan. Can I make up for these days while I am in this state? Will my fasting be valid? Please advise.

Fatwa:

All perfect praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His Slave and Messenger.

The woman who suffers from vaginal bleeding outside the menstrual period can perform the prayers and observe fasting according to the unanimous agreement of scholars. So, if it is proven that you have vaginal bleeding outside the menstrual period, there will be no blame on you to make up for the days of fasting that you missed, and your fasting in this state is undoubtedly valid. Rather, it is obligatory for you to make up for these days before the next Ramadan even if the bleeding continues.

The eminent scholar Shaykh Ibn Baaz  may  Allaah  have  mercy  upon  him clarified the meaning and rulings of this vaginal bleeding which occurs outside the menstrual period saying, “The woman who suffers from vaginal bleeding, which is neither menstruation nor post-partum bleeding, takes the ruling of the pure woman. She can pray, fast and be lawful to her husband. She should perform ablution for every prayer, like the one who suffers from continuous urination or passing wind or the like. She should block the blood by a piece of cotton or the like, lest her body or clothes would be stained, as supported by the authentic Hadeeths of the Prophet  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ).

Allah Knows best.
