باب بَدْءُ الْحِيضِ وَهَلْ يُسَمَّى الْحِيضُ نِفَاسًا

The beginning of menstruation, and can menstruation be called Nifas?

 
أَخْبَرَنَا إِسْحَاقُ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ، قَالَ أَنْبَأَنَا سُفْيَانُ، عَنْ عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ بْنِ الْقَاسِمِ بْنِ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ أَبِي بَكْرٍ الصِّدِّيقِ، - رضى الله عنه - عَنْ أَبِيهِ، عَنْ عَائِشَةَ، قَالَتْ خَرَجْنَا مَعَ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم لاَ نُرَى إِلاَّ الْحَجَّ فَلَمَّا كُنَّا بِسَرِفَ حِضْتُ فَدَخَلَ عَلَىَّ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم وَأَنَا أَبْكِي فَقَالَ ‏"‏ مَا لَكِ أَنَفِسْتِ ‏"‏ ‏.‏ قُلْتُ نَعَمْ ‏.‏ قَالَ ‏"‏ هَذَا أَمْرٌ كَتَبَهُ اللَّهُ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ عَلَى بَنَاتِ آدَمَ فَاقْضِي مَا يَقْضِي الْحَاجُّ غَيْرَ أَنْ لاَ تَطُوفِي بِالْبَيْتِ ‏"‏ ‏.‏
 
It was narrated that  Ummul Momineen Aishah (رضئ اللہ تعالی عنہا) said: "We went out with the Apostle of Allah (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) with no intention other than Hajj. When he was in Sarif,  I began menstruating. The Apostle of Allah (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) came and I was weeping. He said: 'What is the matter with you? Has your Nifas begun?' I said: 'Yes.' He said: 'This is something that Allah (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ)  has decreed for the daughters of Adam. Do what the pilgrims do but do not perform Tawaaf around the House.'"
 
 
It was narrated from Fatimah bint Qais (رضئ اللہ تعالی عنہا) from Banu Asad Quraish that she came to the Apostle of Allah (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) and mentioned that she suffered from menorrhagia. She said that he said to her: "That is a vein, so when the time of menstruation comes, stop praying, and when it goes, take your bath and wash the blood from yourself then pray."

 
أَخْبَرَنَا هِشَامُ بْنُ عَمَّارٍ، قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا سَهْلُ بْنُ هَاشِمٍ، قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا الأَوْزَاعِيُّ، عَنِ الزُّهْرِيِّ، عَنْ عُرْوَةَ، عَنْ عَائِشَةَ، أَنَّ النَّبِيَّ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ ‏ "‏ إِذَا أَقْبَلَتِ الْحِيضَةُ فَدَعِي الصَّلاَةَ وَإِذَا أَدْبَرَتْ فَاغْتَسِلِي ‏"‏ ‏.‏
 
It was narrated from Ummul Momineen Aishah (رضئ اللہ تعالی عنہا) that the Prophet (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) said: "When the time of menstruation comes, stop praying, and when it goes, perform Ghusl."

 
It was narrated that 'Aishah said: "Umm Habibah bint Jahsh (رضئ اللہ تعالی عنہا) asked the Apostle of Allah (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم): 'O Apostle of Allah (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم), I suffer from menorrhagia.' He said: 'That is a vein, so perform Ghusl, then pray.' And she used to perform Ghusl for each prayer."

 

CHAPTER (3)

باب الْمَرْأَةِ يَكُونُ لَهَا أَيَّامٌ مَعْلُومَةٌ تَحِيضُهَا كُلَّ شَهْرٍ
 
أَخْبَرَنَا قُتَيْبَةُ، قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا اللَّيْثُ، عَنْ يَزِيدَ بْنِ أَبِي حَبِيبٍ، عَنْ جَعْفَرِ بْنِ رَبِيعَةَ، عَنْ عِرَاكِ بْنِ مَالِكٍ، عَنْ عُرْوَةَ، عَنْ عَائِشَةَ، قَالَتْ إِنَّ أُمَّ حَبِيبَةَ سَأَلَتْ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم عَنِ الدَّمِ - فَقَالَتْ عَائِشَةُ رَأَيْتُ مِرْكَنَهَا مَلآنَ دَمًا - فَقَالَ لَهَا رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏ "‏ امْكُثِي قَدْرَ مَا كَانَتْ تَحْبِسُكِ حِيضَتُكِ ثُمَّ اغْتَسِلِي ‏"‏ 

It was narrated from Ummul Momineen Aishah (رضئ اللہ تعالی عنہا) that Umm Habibah (رضئ اللہ تعالی عنہا) asked the Apostle of Allah (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) about bleeding.

It was narrated that Ummul Momineen Umm Salamah (رضئ اللہ تعالی عنہا) said: "A woman asked the Prophet (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم): 'I suffer from menorrhagia and I never become pure; should I stop praying?' He said: 'No. Stop praying for the number of days and nights that you used to menstruate, then perform Ghusl, wrap a cloth around yourself, and pray.'"

 
أَخْبَرَنَا قُتَيْبَةُ، عَنْ مَالِكٍ، عَنْ نَافِعٍ، عَنْ سُلَيْمَانَ بْنِ يَسَارٍ، عَنْ أُمِّ سَلَمَةَ، أَنَّ امْرَأَةً، كَانَتْ تُهَرَاقُ الدَّمَ عَلَى عَهْدِ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم اسْتَفْتَتْ لَهَا أُمُّ سَلَمَةَ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم فَقَالَ ‏ "‏ لِتَنْظُرْ عَدَدَ اللَّيَالِي وَالأَيَّامِ الَّتِي كَانَتْ تَحِيضُ مِنَ الشَّهْرِ قَبْلَ أَنْ يُصِيبَهَا الَّذِي أَصَابَهَا فَلْتَتْرُكِ الصَّلاَةَ قَدْرَ ذَلِكَ مِنَ الشَّهْرِ فَإِذَا خَلَّفَتْ ذَلِكَ فَلْتَغْتَسِلْ ثُمَّ لْتَسْتَثْفِرْ بِالثَّوْبِ ثُمَّ لْتُصَلِّي ‏"‏ ‏.‏

He said: "Let her count the number of nights and days that she used to menstruate each month before this happened to her, and let her stop praying for that period of time each month. Then when that is over let her perform Ghusl, then wrap a cloth around herself, and pray."

It was narrated from  Ummul Momineen Aishah (رضئ اللہ تعالی عنہا) that Umm Habibah bint Jahsh (رضئ اللہ تعالی عنہا) who was married to 'Abdur-Rahman bin 'Awf (رضئ اللہ تعالی عنہ) suffered from menorrhagia and did not become pure. Her situation was mentioned to the Apostle of Allah (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) and he said:"That is not menstruation, rather it is a kick in the womb, so let her work out the length of the menses that she used to have, and stop praying (for that period of time), then after that let her perform Ghusl for every prayer."

It was narrated from Ummul Momineen Aishah  (رضئ اللہ تعالی عنہا) that Umm Habibah bint Jahsh  (رضئ اللہ تعالی عنہا) used to suffer from menorrhagia for seven years. She asked the Prophet (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) and he said: "That is not menstruation, rather it is a vein. Tell her not to pray for the period of time that her period used to last, then let her perform Ghusl and pray." She used to perform Ghusl for every prayer.

 
أَخْبَرَنَا عِيسَى بْنُ حَمَّادٍ، قَالَ أَنْبَأَنَا اللَّيْثُ، عَنْ يَزِيدَ بْنِ أَبِي حَبِيبٍ، عَنْ بُكَيْرِ بْنِ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ، عَنِ الْمُنْذِرِ بْنِ الْمُغِيرَةِ، عَنْ عُرْوَةَ، أَنَّ فَاطِمَةَ بِنْتَ أَبِي حُبَيْشٍ، حَدَّثَتْهُ أَنَّهَا، أَتَتْ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم فَشَكَتْ إِلَيْهِ الدَّمَ فَقَالَ لَهَا رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏ "‏ إِنَّمَا ذَلِكِ عِرْقٌ فَانْظُرِي إِذَا أَتَاكِ قَرْؤُكِ فَلاَ تُصَلِّي وَإِذَا مَرَّ قَرْؤُكِ فَلْتَطَهَّرِي ثُمَّ صَلِّي مَا بَيْنَ الْقُرْءِ إِلَى الْقُرْءِ ‏"‏ ‏.‏ قَالَ أَبُو عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ قَدْ رَوَى هَذَا الْحَدِيثَ هِشَامُ بْنُ عُرْوَةَ عَنْ عُرْوَةَ وَلَمْ يَذْكُرْ فِيهِ مَا ذَكَرَ الْمُنْذِرُ ‏.‏
 
It was narrated from 'Urwah that Fatimah bint Abi Hubaish (رضئ اللہ تعالی عنہا) narrated that she came to the Apostle of Allah (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) and complained to him about bleeding. The Apostle of Allah (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) said to her: "That is a vein, so when your period comes, do not pray, and when your period is over, purify yourself and pray in between one period and the next." Abu 'Abdur-Rahman said: Hisham bin 'Urwah reported this Hadith from 'Urwah, and he did not mention what Al-Mundhir mentioned in it.

 
It was narrated that Ummul Momineen Aishah (رضئ اللہ تعالی عنہا) said: Fatimah bint Abi Hubaish (رضئ اللہ تعالی عنہا) came to the Apostle of Allah (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) and said: "I am a woman who suffers from menorrhagia and I never become pure. Should I stop praying?" He said: "No, that is a vein, it is not menstruation. When your period comes, stop praying, and when it goes, wash the blood from yourself and pray."

أَخْبَرَنَا يَحْيَى بْنُ حَبِيبِ بْنِ عَرَبِيٍّ، عَنْ حَمَّادٍ، عَنْ هِشَامِ بْنِ عُرْوَةَ، عَنْ أَبِيهِ، عَنْ عَائِشَةَ، قَالَتِ اسْتُحِيضَتْ فَاطِمَةُ بِنْتُ أَبِي حُبَيْشٍ فَسَأَلَتِ النَّبِيَّ صلى الله عليه وسلم فَقَالَتْ يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ إِنِّي أُسْتَحَاضُ فَلاَ أَطْهُرُ أَفَأَدَعُ الصَّلاَةَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏"‏ إِنَّمَا ذَلِكِ عِرْقٌ وَلَيْسَتْ بِالْحِيضَةِ فَإِذَا أَقْبَلَتِ الْحِيضَةُ فَدَعِي الصَّلاَةَ وَإِذَا أَدْبَرَتْ فَاغْسِلِي عَنْكِ الدَّمَ وَتَوَضَّئِي وَصَلِّي فَإِنَّمَا ذَلِكِ عِرْقٌ وَلَيْسَتْ بِالْحَيْضَةِ ‏"‏ ‏.‏ قِيلَ لَهُ فَالْغُسْلُ قَالَ ‏"‏ وَذَلِكَ لاَ يَشُكُّ فِيهِ أَحَدٌ ‏"‏ ‏.‏ قَالَ أَبُو عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ قَدْ رَوَى هَذَا الْحَدِيثَ غَيْرُ وَاحِدٍ عَنْ هِشَامِ بْنِ عُرْوَةَ وَلَمْ يَذْكُرْ فِيهِ ‏"‏ وَتَوَضَّئِي ‏"‏ ‏.‏ غَيْرُ حَمَّادٍ وَاللَّهُ تَعَالَى أَعْلَمُ ‏.‏

When your period comes, stop praying, and when it goes wash the traces of blood from yourself and do Wudu'. That is a vein and is not menstruation.'" It was said to him (one of the narrators): "What about Ghusl?" He said: "No one is in doubt about that."

CHAPTER (8)

باب مَا يُنَالُ مِنَ الْحَائِضِ وَتَأْوِيلِ قَوْلِ اللَّهِ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ ‏{‏ وَيَسْأَلُونَكَ عَنِ الْمَحِيضِ قُلْ هُوَ أَذًى فَاعْتَزِلُوا النِّسَاءَ فِي الْمَحِيضِ ‏}‏ الآيَةَ
Sunan an-Nasai, Vol 1, Bk 3, Hadith # 21

It was narrated that Anas (رضئ اللہ تعالی عنہ) said: "When one of their womenfolk menstruated, the Jews would not eat or drink with them, or mix with them in their houses. They (the Companions) asked the Apostle of Allah (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) about that, and Allah, the Mighty and Sublime, revealed the Ayah -   [And they ask you about menstruation.  Say, ‘It is a mild harm, so keep apart from women during menstruation and do not approach them until they have purified themselves. ] (Al-Baqara - 222)  So the Apostle of Allah (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) commanded them to eat and drink with them (menstruating women) and to mix them in their houses, and to do everything with them except intercourse. The Jews said: 'The Apostle of Allah (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) does not leave anything of our affairs except he goes against it.'  Usaid bin Hudair and 'Abbad bin Bishr (رضئ اللہ تعالی عنہما) went and told the Apostle of Allah (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) and asked: 'Should we (also) have intercourse with them when they are menstruating?' The expression of the Apostle of Allah (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) changed greatly until we thought he was angry with them, and they left. Then the Apostle of Allah (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) received a gift of milk, so he sent someone to bring them back and he gave them some to drink, so we knew that he was not angry with them.
