Please let me know if there is a maximum number of days after which a woman has to commence with her salaat during menstruation. For eg, menstruation should not last longer than 10 days. If your menstrual cycle lasts a full 10 days and you spot during the last days, when can you read your salaat.


In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatoh
