In the month of April I got my periods on 14th which lasted for 10 days and then in the month of May I got my periods on 18th which again lasted for 10 days. I started to bleed again on 11th June. Will this recent bleeding be regarded as istihadha since I did not get 15 days of purity in between? 

If I bleed for more than 3 days, Will all of it is istihadha?








Muhtaram / Muhtaramah


In the Name of Allāh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāh wa-barakātuh.


Your recent bleeding (i.e. from 11th June) will be considered istihadha and not haidh, since it occurred before completion of a fifteen day purity period.


Kindly explain your statement ‘If I bleed for more than 3 days…..’


And Allah Ta’ala Knows Best
