    As Salam I was told by a good resourceful person that a women who has missed her ramadan days due to her periods can make the niate for those days and for the 6 days of Shawal . Allah Alam.

  2. nayyar hashimie said:

    As Salam Have one other question please if you can help me If one women has been called by Allah swt to come to hajj and she is ready for it with her husband and she knows she will have her period in those days of Hajj is it permissable to take the pills so she can complete the hajj with her husband in a purity. JazakahAllah

    sorry for the late reply. According to the opinion of majority of the scholars, you have to make up the fast of ramadaan first and then the 6 days of shawwaal. And you can not combine the niyyah of making up the Ramadaan fast with the shawwaal. see the fatwa by shaykh Uthaymeen below.

    Making up missed Ramadaan fasts with fasting six days of Shawwaal with one intention:

    That is not valid, because fasting the six days of Shawwaal can only be done after fasting Ramadaan in full.

    Shaykh Ibn 3Uthaymeen said: ”Whoever fasts the day of 3Arafah, or the day of 3Ashoorah, but still owes days from Ramadaan, his fast is valid, but if he intends to fast this day to make up for a missed Ramadaan fast, he will have two rewards: the reward for the day of 3Arafah or 3Ashoorah long with the reward for making up the missed fast. This has to do with voluntary fasts in general that are not connected to Ramadaan.

    With regard to fasting the six days of Shawwaal, they are connected to Ramadaan and can only done after making up missed Ramadaan fasts. If he fasts them before making up missed Ramadaan fasts he will not attain that reward, because the Prophet sallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa sallam said: “Whoever fasts Ramadaan then follows it with six days of Shawwaal, it will be as if he fasted for a lifetime.” It is well known that whoever still owes days from Ramadaan is not regarded as having fasted Ramadaan until he makes up the days he missed.” (11)

    yes, she can use/take the pills for Hajj and Umrah, if she has her periods during those days.

    t is permissible to use these pills if they do not cause harm to the woman; that may be known by consulting a specialized doctor.

    The Standing Committee for Issuing Fatwas was asked about this matter, and they replied:

    It is permissible for a woman to use pills to delay her period at the time of Hajj if she fears she may get her period, but that is only after consulting a specialized doctor to make sure that this will not affect her health. She may do likewise in Ramadaan if she wants to fast with the people.
    Fataawa al-Jaami’ah li’l-Mar’ah al-Muslimah, 2/495.
