The Fasting Woman

Question asked to Imaam Muqbil ibn Haadi (may Allaah have mercy upon him)

Q. What is the ruling of the fasting woman who menses came upon her while there was a short time remaining before the breaking of the fast?

A. "It is obligatory upon her to make up that day. This is the case if the Mu-adh-dhin calls the adhaan on time. As for the case where the sun has set and the menses came upon her, but the Mu-adh-dhin did not call the Adhaan yet, {except the likes of the Adhaan of the Shee'ah}, and the sky has become dark, her fast is correct and it is not obligatory upon her to make up that day."
