One of my friends want to ask about a problem related to her salaah. Her usual periods have always been 7 days max. But now she is using contraceptive pills and due to pills the periods prolonged to 10 days or more (i.e after 7 days not proper bleeding or brown discharge but yellowish or little greenish without becoming clear). She starts salah after 10 days as she had read that 10 days are the max limit. Should she start salaah after 7 days or 10 days as its clearly due to the medication not natural because if she leaves the pill it goes back to 7 days.

A: If her menstrual period previously was seven days and now she experienced bleeding for more than ten days, seven days will remain her haidh and thereafter the remaining days will be istihaaza. The salaah missed during haidh will not be performed, however the salaah missed during the istihaaza period will have to be performed. 

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

(و ما تراه ) من لون ككدرة و تربية ( في مدته ) المعتادة (سوى بياض خالص ) قيل هو شيئ يشبه الخيط اللأبيض ( ولو ) المرئى ( طهرا متخللا ) بين الدمين ( فيها حيض ) لأن العبرة لأوله وآخره وعليه المتون فليحفظ

و في رد المحتار : قوله ( ككدرة وترابية ) اعلم أن ألوان الدماء ستة هذان والسواد والحمرة والصفرة والخضرة … قوله ( المعتادة ) احتراز عما زاد على العادة وجاوز العشرة فإنه ليس بحيض … قوله ( فيها ) أي في مدة الحيض, قوله ( حيض ) خبر المبتدأ وهو قوله وما تراه ( رد المحتار 1/289)

ومنها أن يكون على لون من الألوان الستة السواد والحمرة والصفرة والكدرة والخضرة والتربية هكذا في النهاية (الفتاوى الهندية 1/36)
