Fasted the whole day and menses started just before sunset

Reference: Fataawa Ramadhaan – Volume 1, Pages 340-341, Fatwa No.287

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 ﷺ and his family and his companions.
