Title: Can a woman in the state of istihaadha pray Tahajjud Salah and Fajr Salah with a single wudhu?


Assalaamu Alaikum,
If one is in the state of istihatha, and wakes up to pray the tahajjud prayer just a few minutes before fajr, after praying tahajjud, will she have to make a new wudhu again to pray fajr?


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

A woman in istihādah will perform wudū for every prayer time and perform her salaah. In the situation, the woman therefore will have to perform her wudhu again for fajr salaah.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
