For a woman who is mazur due to regular discharge from the vagina and makes wudhu for each prayer does the rule apply that if she gets the last rakah of the prayer she got the entire salah? When times running out.
بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم
In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
One will become a Ma’zoor only if the state of impurity lasts for one complete duration of a Salah time. If throughout this time, blood, urine or any other impurities flowed or dripped continuously, not enabling one to make wudhu and perform the Fardh Salah with purity, then one will be known as a Ma’zoor. The time will be reckoned from the Salah time immediately following the Salah time in which the illness etc… happened.
During this time if the illness stopped long enough to enable one to make the faraaidh of wudhu (face, arms etc…) and just the Fardh Salah, then one will not be considered a Ma’zoor.
After qualifying as a Ma’zoor, one will remain a Ma’zoor as long as the bleeding, discharge etc… does not stop for one full Salah time.
Upon becoming a Ma’zoor, it is not necessary for the bleeding to be continuous in the succeeding Salah times, it will suffice if the bleeding was for just a moment for one to continue to be considered a Ma’zoor.
A Ma’zoor shall make Wudhu for every Fardh Salah. The wudhu of a Ma’zoor remains valid for the duration of the Salah time and all the factors which break wudhu besides the factor responsible for making one Ma’zoor, will nullify the wudhu of a Ma’zoor. (Ahsanul Fatawa p.77 v.2 & Fatawa Darul Uloom Deoband p.298 v.1)
If the person in question is able to perform the faraaidh of wudhu and at least can catch one rakaat of the fardh that will be sufficient for him or her not to remain as a Ma'zoor.
The Prophet of Allah Sallallahu Alahi Wasalam said: “Whoever catches up with a rak’ah of the prayer has caught up with the prayer.” (Sahih Bukhari and Sahih Muslim)
Only Allah knows best.
