Q: Three months before I had a injection to not have pregnancy, but after that my periods stop for few weeks I had bleeding that was not periods one but I had been praying with putting clean pad in every namaz now I want to ask you that my action was acceptable which I have been praying and secondly after that bleeding stopped. Just few days little bit bleeding for some time a day and some time couple of days then it stops. So please guide me fully that shall I pray in these days or shall I wait for three days like haidh?
A: The ruling of shari`ah is that if the bleeding occurs after the minimum amount of purity i.e. 15 days and the bleeding continues for 3 days or more then that bleeding will be counted as haidh.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
