Rape and Salaah

E-mail Print PDF
Q: If a Muslim girl is raped (May Allah save all from this), and the time for salah is expiring, should she go to the police/doctor or must she read her salah 1st? But if she reads salah 1st then that will need her to make ghusl, which will erase all traces of blood and semen, which will make it difficult for the doctor/hospital/police.

In this case she should make Tayammum and offer her Salaah quickly.After having being examined, she should then make Ghusl and repeat that Salaah.
