Bleeding after haidh

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I had my periods on 20th Jan and I had ghusl on 26th and started my prayers. Now after 12 days I again started bleeding. So what is the order in such a case, should I consider it haiz after 15 days?


A: No. Regard this bleeding to be istihaazah.

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