Pearl of Wisdom

with regards to Allah's verse: Do not be like her who would undo her yarn, breaking it up after [spinning it to) strength, by making your oaths a means of [mutual) deceit among yourselves ... , said, 'The one who undid her yarn was a woman from the tribe of Banitaym b. Murrah, called Rabita (Rayta), daughter of Ka'b b. Sa'd b. Taym b. Ka'b b. Lu'ayya b. Ghalib. She was a stupid woman who would spin hair, and after she had spun it, she would undo it then start to spin it all over again. So Allah said, ''Do not be like her who would undo her yarn ... Verily Allah, Blessed and most High, has commanded the fulfilment of the oath and has prohibited its breaking, and has made this a parable for them.'

Question : #542 Category: Women's Issues
Subject: istihaza enquiry
Question: Eleven weeks ago I gave birth to a baby girl. However, since then I have been in a state of slight istihaza. when I read Sistani's Resalah I am under the impression that after the Nifas period and the 10 days Istihaza I would treat the blood to be Haiz if it fall during my Haiz habit (even if it does not bear signs of Haiz) and istihaza on other days.
However, I have also been informed that since I am breastfeeding and it does not bear the signs, all of it is istihaza. Can you clarify this for me?
Answer: From the time when the child birth takes place, the blood seen by the mother is Nifas, provided that it stops before or on completion of the tenth day. While in the condition of Nifas, a woman is called Nafsa.

If Nifas blood is seen by a mother for more than 10 days and she has a fixed habit of Hayz, then her Nifas will be equal to the duration of Hayz and the rest would be Istihaza. And, if she does not have a fixed habit of Hayz, she would take ten days as those of Hayz, and treat the rest as Istihaza.
