Answer:

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

Due to the brown discharge, if you are unable to keep your Wudhū for one complete Salāh time, such that you are unable to perform Wudhu and perform Salāh without invalidating Wudhu, then you are classified as a Ma’dhūr (one who is excused).[1] You will then remain a Ma’dhūr as long as the excuse occurs at least once during every Salāh time thereafter.[2] As soon as a complete Salāh time passes without the excuse occurring even one time, then you will no longer be considered a Ma’dhūr.[3]

 

A Ma’dhūr is required to renew Wudhu only upon the termination of a Salāh time.[4] For example, if one is Madhūr due to continuous bleeding and he performs Wudhu for Dhuhr Salāh, he will be in a state of Wudhu until the time of Dhuhr terminates, even if he bleeds in the time of Dhuhr.

 

However, if a reason other than the one that classified him as Ma’dhūr transpires, then Wudhu will be invalidated. For example, if the Ma’dhūr in the above example passes wind before Dhuhr Salāh time elapses, his Wudhū will be invalidated.[5]

 

An easy method to ascertain whether you are classified as Ma’dhūr is to examine yourself in the time between Asr and Maghrib Salāh, since it is generally the shortest duration of a Salāh time. If in that time span, you are unable to perform Wudhu and perform Asr Salāh due to the brown discharge, you are classified as Ma’dhūr and the abovementioned concessions will apply.

 

With regards to the brown discharge on your clothing, if you wash the brown discharge, it will appear on your clothing again before you are able to complete your Salah, then it is not necessary to wash off the discharge. In this case, the Salah will be valid with the discharge.[6]
