Haidh pattern changing to ten days

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: A woman’s haiz normally lasts for 7 days. However her haiz last month was for 10 days. If she stopped bleeding after 7 days this month, does she still have to remain covered from navel to knees infront of her husband?


A: Since her haidh pattern changed to ten days, she should refrain from having relations with her husband for the entire duration of ten days. The area between the navel till the knee (including the knee) must be covered at the time of intimacy for the entire duration of ten days.

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