Istikhada

01 Mar 2019 Ref-No#: 1454

Assalam Alyaikum! I have istikhada every month, my last normal haid was 7 days. I would like to know what to do when next discharges will begin. Should I wait 10 days and take a gusl or should I take it after 7 days (my adat)?

Answer

Wa’alaykum as Salam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu,

If your bleeding terminates before ten days (8th, 9th or 10th day), then that entire bleeding will be Haidh.

If your bleeding continues more than 10 days, only 7 days will be regarded as Haidh, and all the remaining days will be Istihaadha.
