Understanding Unusual Istihadhah Blood

Posted on

Understanding Unusual Istihadhah Blood ~ Hi all readers! In the previous article, I explained the difference between menstrual blood color and istihadhah blood color. In this article, I will explain the problem that may be experienced by some Muslim women when they are istihadhah. For example, “There are Muslim women who experience istihadhah for one month. Surely, she cannot distinguish when she menstruation, even though menstruation is a normal condition experienced by women. If there is a Muslim woman who experiences such conditions, what should she do?”

As always, before I speak further, I will quote the hadith that is specifically related to this issue.

Hadith About Unusual Istihadhah Blood

The hadith about unusual Istihadhah blood that I mean is as follows:

عَنْ حَمَنَةَ بِنْتِ جَحْشٍ قَالَتْ : كُنْتُ أُسْتَحَاضُ حَيْضَةً كَبِيْرَةً شَدِيْدَةً . فَأَتَيْتُ النَّبِيَّ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ أَسْتَفْتِيْهِ ، فَقَالَ ؛ إِنَّمَا هِيَ رَكْضَةٌ مِنَ الشَّيْطَانِ ، فَتَحَيِّضِيْ سِتَّةَ أَيَّامٍ أَوْ سَبْعَةَ أَيَّامٍ ثُمَّ اِغْتَسِلِيْ ، فَإِذَا اِسْتَنْقَأْتِ فَصَلِّيْ أَرْبَعَةً وَعِشْرِيْنَ أَوْ ثَلَاثَةً وَعِشْرِيْنَ وَصُوْمِيْ وَصَلِّيْ ، فَإِنَّ ذَلِكَ يُجْزِئُكِ ، وَكَذَلِكَ فَافْعَلِيْ كُلَّ شَهْرٍ كَمَا تَحِيْضُ النِّسَاءُ ، فَإِنْ نَوَيْتِ عَلَى أَنْ تُؤَخَّرِيْ الظُّهْرَ وَتُعَجَّلِيْ الْعَصْرَ ، ثُمَّ تَغْتَسِلِيْ حِيْنَ تَطْهُرِيْنَ ، وَتُصُلِّيْ الظُّهْرَ واَلْعَصْرَ جَمِيْعًا ، ثُمَّ تُؤَخَّرِيْنَ الْمَغْرِبَ وَتُعَجِّلِيْنَ الْعِشَاءَ ، ثُمَّ تَغْتَسْلِيْنَ وَتَجْمَعِيْنَ بَيْنَ الصَّلَاتَيْنِ ؟ فَافْعَلِيْ ، وَتَغْتَسِلِيْنَ مَعَ الصُّبْحِ وَتُصَلِّيْنَ ، قَالَ : وَهُوْ أَعْجَبُ الْأَمْرَيْنِ إِلَيَّ . رَوَاهُ الْخَمْسَةُ إِلَّا النَّسَائِيُّ

From Hamanah bint Jahsy, she said, “I experienced extraordinary istihadhah. I then came to the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam to ask for an explanation from him. He then said, “Indeed it is an encouragement from Satan. Make a period for six or seven days, then take a bath! If you are clean, then pray twenty-four times or twenty-three times, fast and pray! Surely that is enough for you. Likewise, also do what is usually done by women who are menstruating. If you intend to end the Dhuhr prayer and prioritize the Asr prayer, then you take a shower until you are holy, then you pray the Dhuhr and Asr together, then you end the Maghrib prayer and put the Isha prayer first, then you take a shower and collect two prayers? Then take a bath at prayer and pray!” He said, “That is one of the two things that amazes me the most.” The hadith is narrated by five people except an-Nasa’i (Ahmad, Abu Daud, at-Tirmidhi, and Ibn Majah).
