Bleeding less than 15 days after one’s last haidh

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: My haidh started on November 7. I was paak either on 14 or 15 November (I do not remember which, and my habit is 7-8 days). Today, on November 28, a little before Fajr, I started bleeding again. Is this haidh or istihaadah? Do I have to pray or not? 


A: It will be istihaadhah.

You should pray and make wudhu for every namaaz.

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