Madhuur due to irregular periods

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by DarulIftaBirmingham

Answered by: Maulana Imran Mughal


I have irregular menses and am madhur since I get constant discharge even on tuhr days which is mostly yellow or brownish.

When my periods stop I wait a few days to confirm this since a lot of times I thought they had stopped when two or three days later I see blood spot again. If during those days when I’m waiting I didn’t bleed them I make qada for all the prayers I missed.

Question is-

if I see blood at night but the next morning I check and there’s no blood and I wait one day to confirm whether I am tuhr or not then do I have to make up prayers of one day and the fajr in between the two times I checked or just make up the prayers of one day ?

Basically, if I see blood but a few hours later do not see blood then do I need to make up for the prayers in between? Or no since after the time of not seeing blood is when my tuhr period starts so no prayers need to be made up?


بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم

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

For the sake of brevity and ease, we will mention the standard procedure.

Haid (menstruation) is of three days minimum and 10 days maximum.

Tuhr (purity period) is of 15 days minimum with no maximum.

A women who experiences bleeding for a duration, less or more than the stipulated period above, is considered to be in Istihada.

She is generally from among two types:-

1. Mubtadi’ah (one with an irregular occurrence): A woman who has completed 10 days haidh but whose blood has not stopped. She will be considered to be ma’dhoor (excused) and will make wudu for every salah during the irregular bleeding.

2. Mu’tadah (one with a habitual occurrence): A woman who has a fixed menstrual cycle every month. She will be considered to be ma’dhoor (excused) after her regular menstrual cycle and will make wudu for every salahduring the irregular bleeding.[1]

And Allah SWT alone knows best.
