Home Women's Issues Shar‘ee Rulings and Etiquettes Q: Are there any specific colours for the discharge to be regarded as haidh?

Introduction

Islam is a perfect deen. Part of the perfection of Islam is that together with the general obligations that apply to everyone, many laws are specific to males or females, keeping in mind each one’s specific roles in life, their physiological differences and other unique characteristics. Thus the laws pertaining to males and females differ in many aspects, among which are the postures of salaah, etc. Some of these rulings are briefly discussed hereunder.

A: There is no specific colour for the discharge to be regarded as haidh. Discharge of any colour – red, yellow, muddy, green, black, or earthy – which is seen in the days of haidh is considered as haidh and it (haidh) will continue until the discharge is pure white or there is no discharge.
