Spotting in the haidh period

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: My haiz cycle is normally 9-10 days. However my last haiz cycle before Ramadhaan was 7 days complete. During Ramadhaan my haiz stopped on the 8th day and after ghusl I continued my salaah. Then it started again after 3/4 salaah times. This continued till the 10th day. Always there will be hours of no haiz. I kept making ghusl as I did not wish to make my salaah qaza. On the morning of the 10th day I again made ghusl as I was clean the whole night. However 2 hours later I saw a small blood dot (smaller than a mustard seed). Honestly I was tired at this point and ignored it. The rest of the day was clear and the 240 hours complete. Now thinking back I am not sure I made the right decision to ignore it. Was I wrong? What do I do? And what of my salaah and fasts. 


Ad by Muslim Ad Network

A: If the spot of blood was within ten days and thereafter you did not bleed for the following 15 days then that spot of blood was haiz and you needed to make ghusal thereafter. Your haiz pattern had changed to 10 days.

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