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


You did not clarify to us your irregular bleeding whether it corresponds to the days of your menses and exceeds it or is less than these days, or that it does not correspond to the days of your menses.

The issues related to menses are very complex so general statements are not enough; rather the issue should be discussed in details.

Anyway, the bleeding that corresponds to your days of menses are menses, and so you should refrain from everything a menstruating woman refrains from, like performing the prayer, fasting and having sexual intercourse. The bleeding outside your days of menses is bleeding outside your menses, and it does not prevent you from any of the above.

For more benefit, please refer to Fatwa 82423

Allaah Knows best.
