Spotting towards the end of haidh

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: During haidh, I have an issue with spotting towards the end. I have no fixed habit. Sometimes 8, 9 or 10 days.

1. During spotting, how often do I need to check if I am clean? At each Salaah time, or after 24 hours? Sometimes I spot, and then spot again only on the next day.

2. After I make Ghusl, say day 8 or 9, I spot again on day 14. How many days are considered as haidh? Do I fall back onto the previous month’s habit?



1. Whenever you are not clear you may check up.

2. Yes, you will go back to your last habit.

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