Dear Brother / Sister,
Menstruation is a natural type of blood that flows at regular intervals from a woman’s uterus after puberty. God has laid down certain rules in connection with this, as a concession to the woman, in consideration of her condition.
Menstruation usually lasts 3 to 10 days and nights, varying from woman to woman. Most women have a regular number of days for their monthly menstrual period. The number of days may fluctuate and the period might come a little early or a little late. So when a woman sees menstrual blood, she should consider herself to be menstruating. When it stops, she should consider herself clean. If more blood appears after her menstrual period has ended, but does not have the same color as menstrual blood, it should not be considered as menstruation.
The menstruation period lasts at least 3 and at most 10 days. The flow less than 3 days (72 hours) or more than 10 days (240 hours) is not accepted as menstruation period. It is accepted to be due to an illness. In the menstruation period it is not a condition to have continuously bleeding. Sometimes the bleeding can stop. For example, if a woman has a three-day flowing then if the bleeding stops for two days and then if again the bleeding continues for three days; the menstruatin period of that woman is accepted 8 days. The two bloodless days in between these days is accepted as the menstruation period as well.
