Day Questions

If the Dhuhr (noon) time has come, and after some time a woman starts her menstrual period before she started performing the prayer, is she still liable to offer the prayer?

If the woman starts the menstruation after the end of the preferred time of the prayer, she should make up this missed prayer after the end of the menstrual period as Qadha. In fact, as an obligatory precaution, she should still make up the missed prayer if sufficient time had passed for her to offer the prayer before the start of her period.

What is the ruling if one was in the mosque and a little bit of blood came out of his wound onto the floor of the mosque?

It is obligatory to remove the najasah from the mosque and restore its taharah again.

What is Usool Al-Fiqh?

The religious Jurisprudence (Fiqh) is the religious rulings that are derived from the religious sources of proof: the Holy Book and the Sunnah of the Prophet and the Imams (peace be upon them). These ruling were known during the beginning of Islam by direct referral as the Prophet and the Imams (peace be upon them) used to explain them to people in simple and understandable ways. As time passed, and people became farther away from the era of the legislation, views differed in understanding the religious texts and the conclusions they derived from them. Fiqh changed from being simple and understandable by the lay people to a specific field of knowledge that required experience to determine the religious rulings. From such a development, the Principles of Fiqh were developed and become a separate field. It discusses the general principles that the jurist requires in the process of derivation. In short, Usool Al-Fiqh is the study of the general rules that the process of derivation depends upon.
