Ruling 433

The bleeding that women above the age of sixty experience is not ruled to be ḥayḍ; however, a woman can experience ḥayḍ between the age of fifty and sixty, although the recommended precaution is that women who are not Qurayshi (sayyidah)46 and who experience bleeding which would previously have been ruled to be ḥayḍ [i.e. had they experienced it before the age of fifty, it would have been ruled to be ḥayḍ], should refrain from doing the things that are unlawful for a ḥāʾiḍ to do and perform the duties of a mustaḥāḍah.

46A sayyidah is a female descendant of Hāshim, the great grandfather of Prophet Muḥammad (Ṣ).
