Q: A woman’s normal habit for haidh is six days. However, in one particular month the bleeding continued after the sixth until the twelfth day. What must she do in this situation?

A: Since her bleeding continued for more than ten days, the maximum period of haidh, she will consider her haidh to be the first six days which was her previous habit. The remaining days of bleeding will be counted as days of istihaadhah. Hence, after taking a bath she should perform the qadha of all the salaah missed after the sixth day.
