Istihadah is totally different from Hayd (menstrual period) in its rulings. Istihadah does not prevent a woman from offering the acts of worship.
Istihadah (irregular bleeding) is the vaginal bleeding of a woman. It could be continuous or it may remain for a short period of time.
It was narrated from Fatimah bint Abi Hubaish that she suffered from Istihadah. The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said to her: “If it is menstrual blood, then it is blood that is black and recognizable, so stop praying, and if it is other than that then perform Wudu’ (ablution), for it is just a (bleeding) vein.” (An-Nasa’i)
Does Hayd prevent a woman from offering the acts of worship? Does istihadah prevent a woman from making `Umrah? How could a woman who suffer from irregular bleeding offer Prayer and Fasting?
