Can a woman suffering istihaadah or a person who is incontinent pray Taraweeh with the wudoo’ for ‘Isha’ even if half of the night has passed?
Dear Brothers & Sisters,As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
Is it permissible for a woman suffering istihaadah (non-menstrual bleeding) to pray qiyaam al-layl when half of the night has passed with the wudoo’ of ‘Isha’?.

Praise be to Allaah.
This issue is the subject of a difference of scholarly opinion. Some scholars are of the view that when half of the night has passed, it is obligatory for her to renew her wudoo’. And it was said that she does not have to renew her wudoo’, and this is more likely to be correct. End quote.
