Menstruation

Menstruation, also known as a period or monthly, is the regular discharge of blood and mucosal tissue (known as menses) from the inner lining of the uterus through the vagina. The first period usually begins between twelve and fifteen years of age, a point in time known as menarche. However, periods may occasionally start as young as eight years old and still be considered normal.

If the type of divorce was a khul'i divorce, you are able to return during the 'iddah period, but with a new marriage contract. This means you will need to perform a nikah ceremony, along with its requirements. 

That is the fiqhi answer, but of course it would be highly recommended for both sides to contemplate on what led to the initial divorce, and how healthy it is to rush back in so quickly. Establishing boundaries, putting conditions and understanding what needs to improve on both sides is extremely necessary in order to eliminate previous problems and happily live together.

And Allah knows best.

Whenever the period starts, fasting is finished and not valid. She can eat and drink whenever she needs but it is not good to eat or drink in front of fasting persons or children who don't understand why she is not fasting.

Fast is immediately invalid as soon as the menstrual cycle starts even if one minute before Maghrib. You will get the reward of what you did, but you must keep that day later on as Qadha fast.

In these matters it is crucial to refer back to your Marja' taqleed, for the specific ruling, but from the view of A. U. Seyid Sistani, if you were confident you did not have to redo those days as qadha', you do not need to pay kaffarah, but you do need to redo those days as qadha`.

In the case of haydh, the maximum number of days that you do not pray/fast would be 10 days, depending on the circumstances you are in. 

If your blood is continous, then you will need to find out where during this period is your haydh days, and the rest being istihadhah. With the istihadhah days, depending on how much blood there is, you will still be able to pray and fast. 

Please familiarise yourself with the rulings of haydh/istihadhah, and below is a presentation that could help you towards this, in shaa Allah:

The reward of the believers who do good does not depend on the quantity but the quality of worship. Quality of worship depends on the degree of sincerity and dedication to Allah (SWT). Woman during menstruation gets reward for every good deed she does and gets also compensation for the suffering of menstruation. That will make her reward not less that the reward of pious men who do good. There is no question of any discrimination between man and woman in front of Allah (SWT) who created both of them and granted them equal chances and help to do good.

It is recommended for the women during her menstruation period to perform Wudhu in the time of Prayers and wear her prayers dress and sit on her place of prayers and be busy in remembering Allah for time like her prayer time. This Wudhu break like any other Wudhu although such Wudhu does not allow her to perform Namaz because of her menstruation.

The 'iddah period for an Islamic divorce is 3 menstrual cycles, or 3 months if a woman is within the age of menstrual cycle but does not menstruate, or delivery of a child if she is pregnant. 

The 'iddah takes effect and commences when the shar'i divorce is conducted. If the court divorce is also an Islamic shar'i court, then it would have that effect as well.

However, if it is a civil/legal divorce, and not a shar'i divorce, she is still Islamically married to her husband and they must initiate procedure of Islamic divorce for her to commence her 'iddah

Bismillah, 

Asalamu Alaykom, 

Check in your Islamic laws book of your marja for details and conditions of when to perform this. It is like a normal  ghusl with a different intention. 
 

Wudu isn't needed after ghusl al janabah and you would automatically have wudu unless you break it during or after your ghusl. For other non-janabah ghusls wudu must be made after if you wish to pray. If your marja states ghusl al hayd gives wudu or ghusl al juma' then you may follow this.  
 

May Allah grant you success
