Question:what are the rules regarding women who are in the phase of Menopause?
where one gets their regular Hayz then nothing for 1-3months....
If then they see light pink blood only during urination.... nothing on the pad??
does she wait..... or do wudhu and pray?
is ghusal wajib?


Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: 441. The blood seen by women after the age of 60 years is not classified as Haydh. And as per recommended precaution, women who are not from Sadaat, if they see blood between the age of 50 and 60 years, having the same signs as those of Haydh, they should combine the 'dos' of mustahaza and 'don'ts' of Haaedha

Question:Is it wajib to perform sajida on turbah?
I have a toddler who takes away my sajdigah while I'm praying. In that case am I allowed to fo sajda on the mat or should I break the namaz and arrange for sajdigah.
Also sometimes I have to perform namaz at a place where I don't have turbah for example airport or at a friend's house. Is it okay to pray without turbah.

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: Turbah is the best thing to perform sajdah on. If not available then any naturally grown substance which is not eaten or worn can be used for sajdah such as leaves, grass, stones etc

If your toddler will take the turbah you have to hold it in your hand and only put it down when you are doing the sajdah. It is not allowed to do it on the mat (unless the mat is made straw etc) nor is it allowed to break the namaz.

At Airport or friends house one can use white paper to do sajdah or keep a small turbah with them.

Question:If I’m praying maghrib salat and and during tashahud I am not sure if it is my 2nd or 3rd rakaat but think it is my 2nd so I get up in qiyam and realize that it was most likely that it was my 3 rd rakaat and I should have completed the salat, should i just complete that 4 th rakat (now that I know its the 4th rakat), do the salam and end it and then do Sajdataw saww or is that entire salat void and I have to offer it again? Jzk

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: Whole salah is void. Doubts can only be repaired in 4 rakat prayers.
Question:M daughter is 12 islamically 13 and wears hijab. Can she take swimming lessons with a female instructor? If there are men sitting outside of pool is it allowed? If some men but they are busy with their children or are elderly in the pool and are on another side of the pool can she take these lessons or go in to swim? I feel bad that her brothers are allowed but she isn’t. Are there other options for her to go swimming in the summer? She has a hijabi swimsuit that is loose and also swim shoes to cover her feet.

Answer: From Ayatollah Sistanis site:
