Sex during menses and spotting. As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. First of all I would like to thank you for providing us the information we require, May Allah reward you in Dunia and here after for answering all our questions in this forum. My question is related to sex during menses Alhamdulillah I am very well aware of the fact that having sex during menses is forbidden in Islam and I avoid doing it during this time. Alhamdulillah I married before 6 months ago and we are happy couple by the grace of Allah.
My Question is, if ones came to know that her menses cycle comes to an end in night after 4 days , she is confident about that and she even took bath before sleep, on the same night she had intercourse with her husband. But immediately after sex, her menses started again with small amount of red discharge and last for 1 more day. So, intercourse is done confidently and purposely knowing that the menses were completely stopped.
In other words, they were sure that menses are stopped completely then only they had sex. Since the couple is very worried about this act which is not liked by Allah, they want to know what could be done to be forgiven by All Mighty Allah.

We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad saws is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers. Women with Prolonged Flows of Blood Shariah defines such an occurrence as the flowing of blood outside of the regular time. This usually happens in two specific cases. In the first case, the woman knows that her flow of menstrual blood is lasting longer than usual. In such a case, she will act according to her customary period, and the remainder will be considered days of prolonged blood flows.
This is based on the hadith of Umm Salamah, in which she asked the Messenger of Allah saws about this condition. He saws said, "She should wait for the days and nights of her normal period and figure them out of the month, and she should leave the prayer during those days. Afterwards she should perform ghusl, tighten something around her vagina and then pray. If the blood is flowing, the Prophet saws ordered her to leave the prayer during her regular period, and to perform ghusl after her customary time has passed.
Then, she becomes just like any other purified person. She should, therefore, behave according to the type of blood she sees. Fatimah bint Abu Hubaish had a prolonged flow of blood, and the Prophet saws told her, "If it is menstrual blood, it is dark and recognizable. If you have that, abstain from the prayer. If it is other than that, make ablution and pray, for it is a vein. They are a hurt and a pollution; so keep away from women sexual intercourse in their courses and do not approach them until they are clean.
But when they have purified themselves ye may approach them in any manner time or place ordained for you by Allah. For Allah loves those who turn to Him constantly and He loves those who keep themselves pure and clean Respected sister in Islam, if you were absolutely confident that your menstruation period was over and you performed the ghusl to purify yourself, rest assured that all the restrictions of menstruation were lifted and it would have been absolutely legal and lawful for you to enjoy your marital relations with your husband.
If after the menstruation period and your performance of your ghusl you experienced or noticed blood-flow, rest assured it was mere spotting, which is only natural amongst some women, and not a continuation of your menstruation flow.
As long as you were confident that your menstruation period was over, and you performed the ghusl to purify yourself from your state of menstruation, rest absolutely assured that all the restrictions of menstruation laid by Shariah were lifted, even if you happened to experience or notice spotting at a later date.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Your brother and well wisher in Islam,.
