Ruling 403

If a mustaḥāḍah starts performing prayers without examining herself, in the event that she had the intention of attaining proximity to Allah and acted in accordance with her duty – for example, her istiḥāḍah was slight and she acted in accordance with the rules of someone who has slight istiḥāḍah – then in such a case, her prayers are valid. However, if she did not have the intention of attaining proximity to Allah or her actions were not in accordance with her duty – for example, her istiḥāḍah was medium but she acted in accordance with the rules of someone who has slight istiḥāḍah – then her prayers are void.
