Q: A woman spots pinkish discharge 5 days before her period date (she spotted the discharge on the 29th of November and she started bleeding on the 2nd of December) she does sometimes get her periods 3-4 days earlier, her normal habit is 10 days.
So my question is, should she count her Haidh from when she noticed the pinkish discharge or when she actually started bleeding?
A: If the pinkish discharge can fall within the days of haidh i.e. at least 15 days after the last haidh then you will count it as haidh.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
