What should I do if my period started earlier than usual and I mistook it for my regular period?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftisays.com
salaams..i have a maslaa the thing is my noraml habit of haidh is at the end of every month around the 25th but this month around the 12th my haidh started so i assumed that my habit has changed and that, that time is my period of haidh,i then was on haidh for ten days, after this ten days i was still bleeding i then came to realise that the date after the ten days of bleeding was the 25/26th which must mean that the bleeding that i started from the 12th for ten days must have been istihadah-not monthly haidh..and the bleeding which started on the 25/26th was my monthly haidh…i just wanted to find out what im supposed to do now since i didnt knw…do i have to make up my salaah for the ten days comencing frm the 12th the period that wasnt my haidh?

Waalaikumussalam warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.
Bismillahir rahmaanir rahim.

You will have to calculate 15 days of purity from the day you took a ghusl of the previous month (before you bled on the 12th). Then, note when the 15th day was and subtract it from the day you started bleeding (on the 12th) and see how many days are achieved between them. You will then have to make up for the Salaah you have missed during this interval. Your actual Haidh commenced on the 15th day that you have noted earlier.

If you have bled for more than 10 days (counting from the 15th day you marked), and you had thought it was your Haidh still and did not perform Salaah, then you will have to make up for those Salaah too as it will be regarded as Istihaadhah and no longer Haidh.

And Allah knows best.
