Irregular bleeding after a miscarriage

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Alhamdulillah, we have a 2 year old child. My wife had a Miscarriage almost 10 months back, now she is facing menses day problem so need your kind advise for Ramadan fasting. 

  1. Two months back, she found little spot of dirty water (or may be blood) for first 5-6 days and then she faced full menses for another 5-6 days and then again little spot of dirty water for 5-6 days so the total duration was 15-17 days. She wasn’t performing any sort of religious obligation in that duration.
  2. Now the same case is going to start, she is finding little spot of dirty water for last 2 days, please let us know if she observe fasting if not then when she can get started.


A: If it continues for three days or more you will count it as haidh.

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

أقل الحيض ثلاثة ايام ولياليها وما نقص من ذلك فهو استحاضة قوله عليه الصلاة والسلام أقل الحيض للجارية البكر والثيب ثلاثة أيام ولياليها وأكثره عشرة أيام وهو حجة على الشافعي رحمه الله تعالى في التقدير بيوم وليلة وعن أبي يوسف رحمه الله تعالى أنه يومان والأكثر من اليوم الثالث إقامة للأكثر مقام الكل قلنا هذا نقص عن تقدير الشرع وأكثره عشرة أيام ولياليها والزائد استحاضة لما روينا وهو حجة على الشافعي رحمه الله تعالى في التقدير بخمسة عشر يوما ثم الزائد والناقص استحاضة لأن تقدير الشرع يمنع إلحاق غيره به (هداية 1/62)
