Her menses started after ‘Asr while she was fasting
Fatwa No: 68398


If a woman starts getting her menses after ‘Asr time in Ramadan, should she continue to fast the rest of the day, or can she break her fast and make up the day later after Ramadan?


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, is His slave and messenger.

If a fasting women comes to experience her menstrual period even a short while before Maghrib time, then her fasting is invalidated and she is required to make up for that day later, as unanimously agreed upon by the Muslim scholars. Women are not allowed to fast while they have their menses.    

Allaah Knows best.
