Answered by Mufti Mohammed Tosir Miah
Assalamualikum. My usual habit is of 10days. After my last periods (10days) I once again had spotting after about 9 or 10 days from my last period but it disappeared within 15days. Then after 22 days from my last period i again had spotting. Now please tell me what is my period of cleanliness 15 days or 20 days. When should i consider my periods and when istihaza.
In the name of Allah, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful.
The Prophet of Allah has said, “Two menstruations cannot occur within fifteen days of each other.” (Sunan Baihaqi)
Keeping this hadith in mind, the bleeding which you saw after 9 or 10 days since your last period would be considered as istihadah, which is a period of cleanliness and not haidh (periods).
Only Allah Knows Best
