Bleeding two weeks after nifaas

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I have a question regarding menstruation. I had post natal bleeding for 40 days. Thereafter I performed ghusl and resumed my prayers. 2 weeks later I began bleeding again. Is this bleeding regarded as my period? Should or should I not perform salaah?


A: After nifaas, there should be at least fifteen days of purity before the next haiz. Hence, the bleeding experienced before the passing of fifteen days will be regarded as istihaaza.

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