Giving charity money from charity money



Is it permissable to give money for charity from the money that someone else has given you in charity?

Also what is the rule for fasting during haidh and the qadha fasts for that?



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

As-salāmu ‘alaykumwa-rahmatullāhiwa-barakātuh.

1. It is permissible for one to give charity from the money that someone else has given him as charity.

2.  In principle, the fast of a woman who experiences Haydh (Menstruation) for any period of time while fasting is invalidated. Moreover, the Fuqaha have stated that it is Wajib (Necessary) for such a woman to abstain from eating and drinking during the fasting time. Such a woman should keep one Qadha fast for each missed fast.[1]

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best

1لا خلاف بين الفقهاء في أنه اذا انقطع دم الحيض بعد الفجر، فانه لا يجزيها صوم ذلك اليوم و يجب عليها قضاؤه ، و يجب عليها الامساك حينئذ عند الحنفية و الحنابلة (الموسوعة الفقهية، ج 18، ص 318)

و منها انيحرم عليهما الصوم فتقضيانه هكذا في الكفاية (الفتاوي العالمكيرية، ج 1، ص 38)
