Discharge after haidh

Q: If a lady after experiencing about 6 days of haidh and from the seventhday slightly coloured discharge, will it be regarded as haidh if

1. The discharge is white when wet but coloured after drying

2. It is very slightly brown/yellow (not pure white) when wet but white when dry and:

a. If it is so little that it does not stain the pad but when making istinjaa it is felt that there was discharge, and now the colour is not known, what should be done?

b. If a lady becomes paak one hour before shoot, does Esha Salaah and taraweeh become fardh on her?



1. The thing to be seen is what is the colour at the time of discharge. If it was white at the time of discharge then you will call it a white discharge.

2. If there is no visible trace of any discharge then you will not count that as a discharge. If there is any type of discharge then you will act accordingly. If it is not in the days of haidh then you will count it as impurity for which wudhu has to be renewed.

3. Yes.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
