I have a query regarding haidh stopping midway. I am aware the maximum haidh is ten days and minimum three days. The scenario is as follows:
A lady starts her fast in Ramadhaan and at zuhr time she sees a small amount of red/brown on the day that her period was due. She breaks her fast and assumes it is her normal period. However the rest of that day she sees nothing and she is completely clean. The following day at suhoor she is still clean so should she start the fast? Assuming it could have been istihaadha,she fasts and reads salaah as she has seen nothing since the day before. Only the next day her period starts as it normally does continuing for 6 days.
The question is does the haidh start from that first small show of red/brown? Also was she correct to start the fast on that day when she had no show despite knowing that she would definitely come on properly very soon. Can you read quran in that time when you are not sure if what you saw was istihadha or part of haidh? Maaf for the long question, I hope I have explained it clearly
