Bleeding after a miscarriage

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I had a miscarriage in January 2017. No limbs of the foetus were formed. After the miscarriage I bled for some time. The bleeding stopped followed by brownish discharge. This is ongoing although lighter. What habit do I use? My previous habit was 6 days prior to having the miscarriage.


A: If the bleeding continues for three days or more, it will be regarded as haidh. You will follow your last habit.

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