The Science of Islamic Flatulence (Part III): Do BROWNISH DISCHARGES (al-kadrah) Offend Allah?


For all of the Islamic women who read this blog, I bring yet another FATWA of great IMPORT! 

Now Muslim men, understand BROWN DISCHARGES are a part of wudoo (prayers), as any pious Muslim does.

(see the FATWA on this topic at The Science of Islamic Flatulence (Part I) Lose your Wudoo?)


 .... but for a sister following the commands of Allah, one needs to know, does a BROWNISH DISCHARGE have any effect on Hajj and ‘Umrah? Now Islamic sisters, do not worry about your un-cleanliness before Allah, if it was not menstrual blood but only a Shart. Because the BROWN DISCHARGES are not menstrual blood or postpartum bleeding (nifaas), rather they were spots that are called al-kadrah (BROWNISH DISCHARGE). 


The ruling on these spots is that wudoo’ is required according to the majority of scholars. If you did wudoo’ when you did tawaaf al-ifaadah, then your tawaaf is valid according to the majority of scholars. If you did not do wudoo’ then there is a difference of scholarly opinion: is tawaaf valid if a person has not purified himself, or not? 


Shaykh Muhammad ibn Saalih al-‘Uthaymeen (may Allaah have mercy on him) said: 


“What comes after purification (from menses) such as brownish or yellowish discharge, or spotting, or wetness, is not menses, so it does not mean that a woman is not allowed to pray or fast, or that a man is not allowed to have intercourse with his wife, because it is not menses.”


Conclusion: Your Hajj is valid in sha Allaah, and so long as these BROWN DISCHARGES are not menses or nifaas. 


Allah be praised!
