Haydh or not

Fatwaa ID: 897


My last menses lasted for ten days and ended 10 days ago but I started bleeding again today. I’m also fasting so I’m not sure if I should pray and continue fasting.

My last few dates were

Dec 20 – Dec 30
Jan 17 – Jan 27
March 1 – March 10

Jazakumullahu khairan

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

We take note of the details of your query. We understand that there has been 10 days only since your last haydh. The minimum days of tuhr is 15 days. Accordingly, the bleeding you spotted today was istihaadhah. Hence, you should continue your fast as well as performing your salaahs.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
