Bleeding for less than 15 days between two haidh

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Please clarify: My haiz cycle is such that I bleed every 15 days for 9-10 days complete. and sometimes I bleed before my 10 days of haiz. In Ramadhaan my haiz completed 10 days. On the 14th day of my clean days I started bleeding again. And it continued like that till the end of my haiz period. (2 days istehaza + 10 days haiz). my query is this. My time of haiz begins at 3pm on the 15th day of my clean days. I checked before 3pm, prayed asr and only checked again after maghrib. Do I repeat the fast of this day as qazaa or is the fast valid.


A: There should be a minimum of 15 days between two haidh. If the bleeding commenced before the completion of 15 days, the bleeding will be regarded as istihaazah. Therefore, you should follow your normal cycle and regard the bleeding on the 14th to be istihaaza.

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