Question: A woman fasted and at sunset, just before the adhaan, her menses came. So does that invalidate her fast?

Response: If her menses came before sunset, then her fast is invalidated, and if it was after sunset, then her fast is valid and she is not required to make up [the fast for that day].

And with Allaah lies all the success, and may Allaah send prayers and salutations upon our Prophet Muhammad (sal-Allaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) and his family and his companions.
