What do the scholars of the Dīn and muftīs of the Sacred Law state regarding the following issue: A woman went to sleep in the state of menses, but when she woke up in the morning, she was pure i.e. there was no sign of menses. So will the ‘Ishā of that night be fard or not and if she woke up after Fajr, then will the qadā of that Fajr also be a must??

Fulfilling the qadā of ‘Ishā is imperative for such a woman, and if the time of Fajr has passed i.e. been and gone, then fulfilling the qadā of Fajr is also essential as well. Just as it is mentioned in Bahār-e-Sharī’at that if a female who is in menses slept at night but when she awoke in the morning there is no sign of menses on the duvet or mattress etc. then she will be regarded as being clean as of that night. She should take a bath and make qadā’ for her ‘Ishā salāh.
