Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

1. I thought i had released discharge and went to check but when i wiped, it
felt pretty dry and all i saw on the paper was slight dampness. the discharge
i had prior to this was discoloured, so i believed im still in hayd. can i
assume that the dampness i saw was normal dampness which is from around m my private area and that im still in hayd?

2. In another incident today, after i was done relieving myself and i washed
myself, i wiped where my discharge comes out to check and i didnt really see
proper discharge – all i saw on the paper i wiped with was dampness/wetness. but i hadnt really wiped the instinja water off of me yet so, can i assume that what i saw is just water from istinja?


Wa’alaykum as Salam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu,

1) If you have completed your normal habit or the maximum period of Haidh (10 days), then you will be pure. The discoloured dampness will not be considered to be your period.

2) Yes, you may consider the dampness as the water of Istinjaa.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best
