Bleeding before the passing of 15 days of the first Period?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by DarulIftaBirmingham

If a girl has period and remains clean for 12 days then she has period for 7 days. So how many days are haidh and how many istihaza?

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful


The Prophet of Allah Sallallahu Alahi Wasalam has said, “Two menstruations cannot occur within fifteen days of each other.” (Sunan Baihaqi)

Keeping this hadith in mind your haidh will be four days and the three days before the fifteen days will be considered as istihadah.

Only Allah Knows Best
