Bleeding After Ten Days in Menstruation

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I had my haidh (menstrual bleeding) and had been clean (no bleeding) for 10 days. I started bleeding again. I understand that the normal clean period is 15 days. If i’m still bleeding do I count 15 days and say that it is haidh or do I call this period Istihaadha?

A: A clean period that separates two haidh should be at least 15 days. You had a clean period of only 10 days. Therefore in Shariah this is counted as a continuation of the previous bleeding. If you have a fixed monthly cycle then consider that amount as your last haidh, and all subsequent bleeding, including the bleeding you are currently experiencing, will be istihaadha.
