Q: A woman started her haiz on the 19/07 at 1:20pm and had a ghusl on the 26/07 at 4:00pm (Normal habit is about 7 days). After that she experienced normal clear discharge on the days that followed. (She normally has a continuous clear discharge out of haiz). However, she noticed a small streak of blood in the clear discharge on the 28/07 at 1:30pm and again on the 29/07 at 5:20 am and at 10:40 pm. Kindly explain which days are counted as haiz and which are not.
A: In this situation, since the blood exceeded ten days, a woman will revert to previous menstrual habit. If her menstrual habit is seven days then she will regard seven days as her haiz and the remainder days as istihaaza.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
