الْـحَيْضُ (The Blood of Menstruation) and  النَّفَاسُ (The Blood of Parturition [Childbirth])

 الْـحَيْضُ (The blood of menstruation) ‮ ‬هُـوَ‮ ‬الدَّمُ‮ ‬الْـخَارِجُ‮ ‬بنَفْسِهِ(is the [natural] blood flow in itself) مِنْ‮ ‬قُبُلِ‮ ‬مَنْ‮ ‬تَـحْمِلُ (from the woman who is able to become pregnant). عَادَةٌ‮ ‬فِي‮ ‬مُدَّةِ‮ ‬خَمْسَةَ‮ ‬عَشَرَ‮ ‬يَـوْمًـا (It can last up to fifteen days) فَدُونَهَا إِلَى سَاعَةٍ‮ ‬ (or as little as an hour) مِنْ‮ ‬غَيْرِ‮ ‬وِلاَدَةٍ‮ ‬([as long as] it is not caused by childbirth) وَلاَ‮ ‬مَـرْضٍ (or illness). فَأَقَلُّهُ (The minimum duration [of purity from the blood of menstruation]) لاَ‮ ‬حَـدَّ‮ ‬لَـهُ (has no limit), كَـأَكْـثَرِ‮ ‬الطُّهْـرِ(likewise the maximum duration [of purity from the blood of menstruation][has no limit]). وَأَمَّا أَقَـلُّ‮ ‬الطُّهْـرِ (The minimum) فَخَمْسَةَ‮ ‬عَشَرَ‮ ‬يَوْمًا (can be fifteen days). وَأَمَّا أَكْثَرُ‮ ‬الْـحَيْضِ (As for the maximum duration period for the blood of menstruation), فَـيَخْتََلفُ (it varies) بِـخْتِلاَفِ‮ ‬الْـحُيَّضِ (in accord with the different menstrual cycles [of each female]). ‮  ‬فَإنْ‮ ‬كَانَـتْ‮ ‬مُـبْتَدَأَةٌ‮ ‬ (If she’s just staring to have a menstrual period) فَأَكْثَرُ (the maximum period) فِـي‮ ‬حَـقِّهَا‮ ‬(in reality) إذَا تَـمَادَتْ‮ ‬بِـهَا الْـحَيْضَةُ (if the bleeding persists) خَمْسَةَ‮ ‬عَشَـرَ‮ ‬يَـوْمًـا (is fifteen days). وَإِنْ‮ ‬كَنَاتْ‮ ‬مُعْتَادَةٌ‮ ‬(If she is a woman who is accustomed to regular menstrual cycles]),فَـإِمَّّا أَنْ تَـخْتَلِفَ‮ ‬عَـادَتُـهَا أَمْ‮ ‬لاَ (her normal period is either irregular or regular). فَـإنْ‮ ‬لَـمْ‮ ‬تَـخْتَلِفِ‮ ‬(Even if it is not irregular), ‮ ‬اسْظهَرَتْ‮ ‬عَلَى عَادَتِهَا بِثَلاَثَةِ‮ ‬أَيَّامًا (she can use precaution by adding three days above her normal period) مَا لَـمْ‮ ‬تُجَاوـِزْ‮  ‬خَـمْسَةَ‮ ‬عَشَـرَ‮ ‬يَوْمًَا ( that usually doesn’t exceed fifteen days),وَإِنِ‮ ‬اخْتِلاَفَتِ‮ ‬اسْتَظَهَرَتْ‮ ‬عَلَى أَكْثرِ‮ ‬عَادَتِهَا‮ ‬ (while if it [her period] is irregular, she can also use precaution for what is beyond her normal period),كَـذَالكَ‮ ‬ (in the same way [that is to say: she can add three days to what is above her normal period]). وَهِـيَ‮ ‬ (She),فِـي‮ ‬أَيَّّامِ‮ ‬الاسْـتِظْهَارِ (during the days of istiḍh-haar [precaution before performing ablution]) ‮ ‬حَـائِـضٌ (is still considered to be a menstruating woman). فَإِنْ‮ ‬تَـمَادَى بِهَا (If it [the bleeding] persist with her) ‮ ‬إِلَى تَـمَامِ‮ ‬خَمْسَةَ‮ ‬عَشَرَ‮ ‬يَومًا (up to the completion of fifteen days), فَحُكْمُهَا حُكْمُ‮ ‬الطَّاهِرِ (the judgement for her is same as the judgement for the woman who has purity) ‮ ‬فِـي‮ ‬تَـوْجِـيهِ(in respect) الصَّلاَةِ (to the prayer),وَالصَّوْمِ‮ ‬(fasting), وعَـدَمِ‮ ‬القَضَاءِ (the repayment of missed prayers), وَإِتْيَانِ‮ ‬الزَّوْجِ (and the arrival of the husband for intercourse).

فصْلٌ (Section)

ولِلطَّهْرِ‮ ‬عَلاَمَتَانِ (Purity from menstruation has two signs:) 1. الْـخُفُوفُ (dryness): وَهُـوَ (it is) أَنْ‮ ‬تُـدْخِـلَ‮ ‬الْـمَرْأَةُ (when a woman puts) خِرْفَةً (a cloth) فِي‮ ‬فُرْجِـهَا (into the opening of her vagina) فَتَخْـرُجَ (and when she takes it out),‮ ‬جَافَّةً (it is dry);لَـيْسَ‮ ‬عَـلَيْهَا شَـيْءٌ‮ ‬مِـنَ‮ ‬الدَّمِ‮ ‬ (there isn’t any blood on it). 2. وَالْقَصَّةُ‮ ‬الْبَيْضَاءُ (al-qiṣṣatu-l-bayḍaa’u) ‮ ‬وَهِيََ‮ ‬مَاءٌ‮ ‬أَبْيَضُ‮ ‬رَقِيٍقٌ(which is thin white water) يَأْتِى فِي‮ ‬آخِرِ‮ ‬الْـحَيْضِ (that comes at the end of menstrual bleeding) كَـمَاءِ‮ ‬الْقَصَّةِ (which like the water from gypsum). ‮ ‬وَهِـيَ‮ ‬الْـجِيرُ(It [resembles] the water of quicklime) وَالْـقَصَّةُ (and gypsum). أَبْـلغُ (This is a more reliable indicator) للْـمُتَادَةِ (for a woman who is accustom to having a menstrual period). فإِذَا رَأَتِ‮ ‬الْـخُفُوفَ‮ ‬أَوَّلاً (Even if she see the dryness first), ‮ ‬انْـتَظَرَتِ (she should still expect to see) الْـقَصَّةَ (the white water) لآخِرِ‮ ‬الْوَقْتِ‮ ‬الْـمُخْتَارِ (towards the end of the particular period).

وَأَمَّا الْـمُبْتَدَأَةُ (As for the one who is just starting to menstruate), فَـلاَ‮ ‬تَـنْتَطِرُ (she should not expect to see) الْـقَصَّةِ‮ ‬ (the white water)إذَا رأَتِ‮ ‬الْـجُفُوفِ‮ ‬أَوَّلاً‮ ‬(if she sees dryness first). وَعَـلَى الْـمَرْأَتِ (A woman is obligated) أَنْ‮ ‬تَنْتَطِرَ‮  ‬طَهْرَهَا (to look for her state of purity) عِنْدَ‮ ‬النَّوْمِ (when she’s going to sleep) وَعِنْدَ‮ ‬صَـلاَةِ‮ ‬الصُّبْحِ (and when it is time to pray Ṣalatu-ṣ-Ṣubḥ).

وَيَـمْنَعُ‮ ‬الْـحَيْضُ (Menstruation prevents) الصَّلاَةَ (prayer [from being performed]), وَالصَّومَ (fasting) والطَّلاَقَ ([the pronouncement of] divorce), ومَسَّ‮ ‬الْـمُصحَفِ (the touching of a copy of the Qur’an), وَقرَاءَةَ‮ ‬القُرْأَنِ (the recitation of the Qur’an), وَدُخُـولَ‮ ‬الْـمَسْجِـدِ (the entry [of a woman] into the masjid), وَالْـوَطَءَ‮ ‬فِـى الْـفُرْجِ (sexual intercourse [between the man and the woman]) زَمَنَ‮ ‬الْـحَيْضِ (during the time of menstruation), وَبَـعَدَهُ (and after it), قَبْلَ‮ ‬طُهْرِهَا بِالْـمَاءِ (before the woman has purified herself with water).

فصْلٌ (Section) النَّفَاسُ (The Blood of Parturition [Childbirth])

النَّفَاسُ (The blood of parturition [childbirth]) هُـوَ‮ ‬الدَّمُ‮ ‬الْـخَارِجُ (is the blood which comes out) مِـنَ‮ ‬الْـقَبْلِ (of the opening of the woman)  بِسَـبَبِ‮ ‬الْوِلاَدَةِ (because of childbirth) غَـيْرَ‮ ‬زَائِدِ‮ ‬عَلى سِـتِّيـنَ‮ ‬يَوْمًا (for a period not exceeding sixty days)1 فَـلاَ‮ ‬يَسْـتَظْهِرُ ([After sixty days,] there are no precautionary days)2. وَحُـكْمُ‮ ‬دَّمِ‮ ‬النَّفَاسِ (The legal ruling for the blood of parturition [childbirth]) فِـيمَا‮ ‬يَـمْنَعُهُ (in respect to what it prohibits) وَِفِي‮ ‬اقتضَائِهِ‮ ‬الْغَسْلَ (and in respect the necessity of ghusl) حُـكْمُ‮ ‬دَمِ‮ ‬الْـحَيْضِ (is the [same as] legal ruling for menstruation) مُـطْلَقًا (without any restriction). وَاللَّهُ‮ ‬أَعْلَمُ (And Allah is the Best Knower).

Footnotes:

1 Minimum of the bleeding after childbirth (Nifas)

وإذا انقطع دم النفساء وإن كان قرب الولادة اغتسلت وصلت

If the bleeding after childbirth (nifas) stops soon after the birth, a woman should do ghusl straightaway and start doing the prayer. [ If shortly after childbirth a woman sees the sign which indicates that it is ended with white discharge and dryness, then she washes and prays. “Soon after birth” has no minimum limit in relation to time and it has a minimum in relation to what emerges, which is one gush.]

Maximum of the bleeding after childbirth (Nifas)

وإن تمادى بها الدم جلست ستين ليلة ثم اغتسلت وكانت مستحاضة تصلي‮ ‬وتصوم وتوطأ

However, if bleeding continues longer than sixty days, then she does ghusl anyway, the bleeding is considered as istihada, and she does the prayer and fasts and her husband can have sexual intercourse with her. [If the bleeding continues, she waits for sixty days, which it the maximum of its extent. If it stops after sixty, the matter is clear. If she continues to bleed after sixty, it is abnormal bleeding and she has a ghusl, prays and fasts and her husband can come to her.]

2 The three precautionary days that a woman waits before performing ghusl.
