Q: A woman’s normal habit for haidh is six days. However, in one particular month the bleeding continued after the sixth until the twelfth day. What must she do in this situation?

A: Since her bleeding continued for more than ten days, the maximum period of haidh, she will consider her haidh to be the first six days which was her previous habit. The remaining days of bleeding will be counted as days of istihaadhah. Hence, after taking a bath she should perform the qadha of all the salaah missed after the sixth day.

Desire for learning deen: Her grandson, Qari Muhammad Tayyib (rahimahullah), says: “When I commenced my studies of hadeeth, I would come home after my lessons and explain the entire lesson to my grandmother who would listen to it with tears continuously flowing from her eyes. This happened for two years.” (Sawaanihe Qaasimi vol.1, pg. 519) 

Lesson: Those whose hearts are clean gain tremendous enjoyment and benefit from the recitation of the Quraan Majeed, reading or listening to the ahaadeeth of Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) and other righteous actions. They do not then need to look for any artificial and false pleasure.

Attachment to worship: Immaterial of what work she may be involved in, once she would hear the muazzin saying “hayya alas salaah” she would leave everything and get up for salaah. Every morning after fajr salaah, she would cover her face with her scarf and engage in the zikr of Allah Ta’ala with great amount of punctuality. She would never miss this under any condition. (Sawaanihe Qaasimi vol.1, pg. 519) 

Lesson: Those whose hearts are attached to Allah Ta’ala are unable to continue doing anything else when the time to stand in front of their Master has come. She practically imparted the lesson that salaah is the most important aspect in a believer’s life. Furthermore, her punctuality in zikr obviously contributed very greatly to her high rank and position. Zikr is the food for the heart. Just as a person who has not eaten food for a few days will become extremely weak and even bed – ridden, likewise the one who starves his/her soul by not engaging daily in zikr will become spiritually very weak. Gradually such a person will lose all interest in righteous actions and many sins will creep in her life.

Smile Away Sadness

A pleasant countenance is also one of the bounties of Allah Ta’ala. A simple way of removing ones grief and keeping happy is to smile at everyone. It is obvious that a woman is not permitted to smile at a strange man. In fact, smiling at strange men will only increase her grief. Put it to the test, smile at someone and automatically that person smiles back. The heart is almost delighted when a person with a happy countenance is seated near one. On the other hand everyone wishes to distance themselves from a person who is straight faced and grumpy. Smiling and cheerfulness is a very healthy form of exercise. If facilitates the digestion of the food. The happiness of the heart is as effective as good medication. If we want good for ourself, we will continue smiling. Together with a smiling face, let our eyes also smile. Be happy and make others happy as well.
