What is the minimum Tuhr period between two Haidh


What if there is no tuhr period between two haidh, my haidh stopped and after 10 days i again experienced bleeding which last for 13 days ? These 14 days are haidh or istehada ? جزاك الله خيراً


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

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

Sister in Islam,

The maximum period of haidh is 10 complete days. The minimum time between two-haidh duration is fifteen complete days, which is regarded as non-menstrual period even though there is bleeding.  [1]

The first five days from the 13 days will be considered as Istihaadha, and the next eight days will be considered as your Haidh.


And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best

المبسوط للسرخسي (3/ 155) [1]

أَنَّ أَقَلَّ مُدَّةِ الطُّهْرِ الصَّحِيحِ خَمْسَةَ عَشَرَ يَوْمًا فَمَا دُونَهُ فَاسِدٌ


الأصل المعروف بالمبسوط للشيباني (1/ 458)

وَأَقل مَا يكون الْحيض ثَلَاثَة أَيَّام ولياليها لَا ينقص من ذَلِك شَيْئا وَأكْثر الْحيض عشرَة أَيَّام ولياليها لَا يزِيد على ذَلِك شَيْئا....


أَلا ترى أَن الدَّم لَو زَاد على عشرَة أَيَّام ولياليها سَاعَة كَانَت تِلْكَ السَّاعَة اسْتِحَاضَة فَكَذَلِك النُّقْصَان إِذا نقص الدَّم من ثَلَاثَة أَيَّام ولياليها شَيْئا لم يكن ذَلِك حيضا لِأَن الْأَثر جَاءَ أَن أدنى الْحيض ثَلَاثَة وَأَكْثَره عشرَة


وَأدنى مَا يكون بَين الحيضتين من الطُّهْر خمس عشرَة لَيْلَة لَا ينقص شَيْئا قَلِيلا وَلَا كثيرا فَإِذا هِيَ رَأَتْ دمين بَينهمَا من الطُّهْر أقل من خمس عشرَة لَيْلَة فهذان الدمَان ليسَا بحيض جَمِيعًا لِأَن الحيضتين لَا يكون بَينهمَا من الطُّهْر أقل من خمس عشرَة لَيْلَة وَهَذَا قَول أبي حنيفَة وَأبي يُوسُف وَمُحَمّد

لَا بُدَّ مِنْ مَعْرِفَةِ مِقْدَارِ الطُّهْرِ الصَّحِيحِ الَّذِي يُقَابِلُ الْحَيْضَ، وَأَقَلُّهُ خَمْسَةَ عَشْرَ يَوْمًا عِنْدَنَا
