Delaying my period and duha

Salaam, as is ramadan and my period should be coming in the last 10 nights I made it certain to take Norethisterone pills to delay my period I ordered from online but the problem is some women while taking the pills might get small bleeding that isn’t related to your menses if that’s the case for me do I continue to fast or break it since I saw spots of bleeding but it isn’t my period?
second question there’s a hadith that mentions if you pray 12 rakat duha prayer a gold castle will be built for you is the hadith weak or strong?

Mani or Madhi doubts

Salaam moulana,
When I go sleep I wrap a tissue around my private part to avoid underwear becoming napaak due to situation below
Majority of days upon awakening when i check the tissue i find wetness on the tissue that seems like it must have come out very recently to the size of less than a 1p coin. This wetness on the tissue absorbs and is no longer visible after a few minutes. I assume this is madhi and do not perform ghusl is this the correct thing to do?

I know when i have a wet dream then the wetness on the tissue is the size of 5-10cm’s like a circle and the tissue is heavy whereas the situation described above is around a circle of 1cm or less. Due to the quantity difference is it correct to assume this is only madhi that is seen nearly daily as no dream is seen and no signs of heavy gushing etc and therefore no ghusl required.

Situation B:
Some days there is no wetness but couple of minutes later clear liquid oozes out. I assume this is madhi too. Is this correct?


Hanafi Fiqh

Quoting statements of disbelief

Is it permissible to quote a statement of kufr, without explicitly saying “he said, they said” or the like before the statement. For example one intends on quoting a statement but doesn’t provide a quoting statement, would this individual blaspheme.

Would one have to say ‘so called’, before for example saying “Saint Thomas Aquinas”, since we know he is a kafir and a kafir can’t be a saint. Or is it understood through our beliefs and just recommended not to call him a saint?

Indiscernible vaginal discharge and intercourse

I’m newly married for about 2 months. My wife had a vaginal discharge before bedtime and she was uncertain of its colour and hence, was unsure if her menses has begun. We engaged in intimacy with no penetration. However, our private parts had skin-to-skin contact at the area between the navel and knees. Am I sinful for this? What is the expiation for my error?

Hanafi Fiqh

Intimate acts whilst fasting

I just recently found out that touching private parts of the spouse is forbidden in Ramadan and I just got married a month ago and wasn’t aware of this. Question: when a husband inserts finger in the vagina of his wife, is the fast of both broken and is expiation and makeup fasts for 60 days or just that day? If the private parts of both touch with discharge from vagina, is the is the fast of both broken and is expiation and makeup fasts for 60 days or just that day?

Hanafi Fiqh


I have regular discharge on a day to day basis which is usually a pale/light yellow. During my haydh, the discharge in the beginning and end is more on the brown/dark yellow side.
Therefore, I wanted to ask, the yellow pale discharge that I experience on a day to day basis, that would be considered as my tuhr period rather than menstruation?

Doubts about purity after periods

I have doubts about the purity after periods, on 1st of May I had my periods at day time around 11 am or 12 pm. Then on 10th of may after Maghrib azan I took ghusl performed isha and even had intercourse with my husband. Then at suhur I woke up and took ghusland kept my fast. On 11th may At day time while i was fasting i came to know that maximum limit of periods as per hanafi fiqh is 240 hrs. And now i am doubtfull that if my fast is valid, should i break it or not. And if i am sinfull that i had intimacy with husbnd if i was not pure at that time. Plz help me with answer as i searched alot but i didnt find any answer. Plz keep in mind that i dont see signs of purity usually even after 10 days. usually i take bath on 11th day after fajar azan and perfrom prayer etc. This time i was concerned about My fast so i searched on the net and found that islamic new day starts after maghrib so i took ghusal etc

Hanafi Fiqh

Unknown menstrual habit and dysfunctional bleeding


Please can you kindly help me to understand when I should be praying and when I shouldn’t.

I kept record of all my menstuation habits, but now realise that I have calculated everything wrong. I didn’t log any istihadah, or take into account any bleeding due to istihadah. So everything I kept a record of would be invalid.

I only wrote down the last time I saw bleeding before the maximum 10 days, but I didn’t write down any bleeding that took place after these 10 days, or of any bleeding before a 15 day purity.

For purity I calculated 15 days after I stopped bleeding (i.e; I counted when I stopped bleeding before the maximum 10 days, and then counted 15 days for purity from there).

Now I realise that this was the incorrect method and I was to take into account my previous months habit if I had any invalid bleeding/purity.

As I have been keeping record of my menstuation and purity this way for a long time, I don’t know what my last proper habit of purity or menstuation was.

I have been having bleeding that extends beyond 10 days, (usually 12 days from when menstuation starts). I take a bath and start praying once I reach 10 days.

Then I have 15 -17 days when I don’t bleed. I take these as purity. When I start bleeding again, I take these days as menstruation up to day 10. And the last 2 days (days 11 & 12 I discard as istihadah).

But sometimes my cycles get even shorter. Example: I bleed for 12 days, and then only have 12-14 days (after the maximum 10 days) no bleeding before I start bleeding again. And here I get confused, as I always have 12 days of bleeding, so I can’t understand wether I should discard the first few days of bleeding as istihadah, or wether I should discard the last few days as istihadah. (As my bleeding is 12 days.)

This has been happening for over 3 years, before this I used to have 8-10 days of menstruation and proper purity. Gradually my menstruation got longer and longer and then it started going over 10 days. At the same time my purity got shorter and shorter.

As I now don’t know what my habit used to be, please advise when I am to pray and when I am to abandon salah.

And I also wanted to ask, when I sometimes get 15-17 days purity (including the 2 days I bleed over 10 days) can I count this as a minimum purity habit? As this purity is in between two invalid bleeding (12 days on each side).

Hanafi Fiqh

Fasting without menstruation ending

Assalamu alaikum,

I wanted to ask if it is permissable to partake in sehri and make intention of fasting once the haidh bleeding has stopped but without officially being “clean” and having a ghusal.

If fajr is not observed, and later in the day it’s confirmed that the period has finished and then ghusal and prayers are observed ie: zohar onwards and no food or drink has been consumed, is the fast counted?

Of course if some more bleeding occurs I know it isn’t,  but I have long periods (upto 8 hrs) of neither bleeding nor having clean discharge to help me decide, hence the confusion.

Jazakallah khair

Wassalaamu alaikum
