1) Regarding haidh, and the lady not seeing blood on her pad, how long should she wait to see if the pad is clean, before having a bath and offering salaah. e.g. should she check once every salaah time, or once a day etc.
2) Regarding nifaas, is there any rules similar to haidh in the aspects of stopping and starting bleeding again after a few days. Nothing is mentioned in beheshti zewar. How does a ladies nifaas stop, if e.g. blood stops then 5 days later starts again, is this still part of nifaas?
1. She could wait till before the end of that namaaz time and if there is no bleeding she should have ghusal and commence with her namaaz etc.
2. If it is within the 40 days it will be part of the nifaas.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
