Not sure whether my menses is over


Salam Alaykum. I thought my period is over so I took ghusl and prayed,after I saw brownish spot on my underwear, I took a cotton swab to check and it showed up yellowish/brownish but few minutes later it was cleaner. This happens to me every period and I’m always confused whether to pray or not and I’m scared of being punished


Salaamun alaykum.

For performing Ghusl haidh (menses), you have to wait until you are completely clean, if u even see a tiny bit of brownish or yellowish brownish discharge, you have to take that as haidh and whenever you check with a cotton swab and find yourself completely clean, then you can perform ghusl and start praying.
