Does a woman have to make Qadha for a Salaah in which time she had her menses (Haidh)?

Q. If a woman did not perform her Salaah after the time of Salaah enters and then she has her Haidh before performing her Salaah, does she have to make Qadha for it after her Haidh ends because she delayed performing the Salaah?

A. The performance of Salaah should not be delayed unnecessarily or intentionally and should be performed at its prescribed times. In an event of a woman not performing her obligatory (Fardh) Salaah on time and her menses (Haidh) commences before performing her Salaah during its prescribed time, it will not be obligatory upon her to make Qadha of the Salaah in which her menses commenced.

N.B. The obligation/non-obligation/concession of Salaah is determined (depending on the state of a person) at the end of a Salaah time.  (Shaami 2/131 – Tabyeenul Haqaaiq 1/215)
