Exact end time of a ten day Haidh

Recommended Posts

Q. If a woman’s Haidh period is ten days and she first spotted blood at 2PM on the first day, then does her Haidh period end on the tenth day at 2PM or at Maghrib time? Does she count ten days by hours or by the Islamic day?
A. A woman in Haidh (menstruation) will count her Haidh from the time she first notices it. She will count her days in 24 hour intervals from the exact time i.e. second, minute, hour that she spotted her Haidh. (Al-Fataawa-As-Siraajiyyah 49)
Therefore, in the enquired situation, if her Haidh period is ten days and she first spotted her Haidh on the first day at 2PM, her Haidh period of ten days will end on the tenth day at 2PM and not at Maghrib time.
