Haidh and Istihaadah


assalaam u alikum;

Jazakallah for the reply.

In reference to  fatwa #40847 i don't quite understand the answer.  

1. Do I count the start of every new heavy bleeding as haaidh OR 2. DoI count 10 days haaidh, 15 days paaki, 10 days haaidh, 15 days paaki .......



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

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

In principle, a woman has a Haidh habit and a clean habit. Therefore you have to see how many days your Haidh period was before Istihaadah.  If your habit was 10 days Haidh from the heavy bleeding then you should count 10 days Haidh from the heavy bleeding. Thereafter you should see how many days your purity period was and regard it as purity period like before.  

Note: You should count the dates of purity period and Haidh period exactly as it was before.


And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
