Opinion FromOpinionExplanation
Imam Shafi, Imam Abu Hanifa, Imam MalikWhen she sees that her menstruation period is over in accordance with one of its indications, she is to take a single bathe. Also, then it is obligatory on her to perform ablution for each prayer.Based on the narration from Aisha (RA) and the narration recorded by Abu Dawud, has the addition in which the prophet (SAW) told her to perform ablution for each prayer.
Imam MalikSame as that of Imam Shafi and Imam Abu Hanifa but it is only recommended for her to make ablution for each prayerBased on the narration from Aisha (RA) but the addition recorded by Abu Dawud is not authentic
Others:
One opinionWomen must bathe herself for each prayerUsing structured interpretation, they said that what is contained in the tradition from Aisha (RA) about Umm Habiba is an addition over the content of Fatima's tradition. What is contained in the tradition of Fatima is a reply to a question whether that was the type of blood that prohibits prayer. The prophet (SAW) didn't inform her at all whether she was to purify herself for each prayer or at the time of the cessation of the menstrual flow.
Another opinionShe is to delay the noon prayer till the time of the middle prayer, and she should then purify herself and combine prayers. Similarly, delay the sunset prayer till the end of its time and the beginninBased on the narration from Asma bint Umays and this abrogated the one from Aisha (RA) about Umm Habiba. They argued for this based on what is narrated from Aisha (RA) about Sahla bint Suhayl (RA)
Disagreement
Reasons:
Jurist adopting the method of reconciliation maintained that Fatima bint Hubaysh tradition is to be interpreted as being addressed to a women who can distinguish the days of normal menstruation from others, while Umm Habiba's tradition is interpreted as being addressed to a women who can't make such a distinction. Because it was likely that each time she was about to pray she had reached the period of purification; it was thus obligatory upon her to wash for each prayer. Asma bint Umay's tradition, on the other hand, is to be interpreted as having been addressed to a woman who cannot distinguish between the days of normal menstruation and extended bleeding, as the flow ceases at times. When the flow ceases, this women is under obligation to bathe and to pray two prayers after the bath
