Is Qadaa necessary if a woman comes on her period like 20 minutes before the exit salaat of a particular salaat?
In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
The salah will become compulsory upon a woman if her menstruation ends and she has enough time before the salah end time to perform a basic ghusl, put on her clothes and say the word ‘Allah’ of the takbeer. If she does not pray at this time she must do Qadha. If she didn’t have enough time to do the ghusl and say the ‘Allah’ of ‘Allahu Akbar’ then the Qadha of that salah is not necessary for her. 20 minutes seems like a reasonable amount of time to be able to do this- however, for certain people, it may take longer especially if there are water heating issues.
Only Allah knows best
