Asslamu alaykum.

If bleeding stops within 10 days and 10 nights but yellowish discharge continues beyond 10 nights, when would i assume the end of my period? This question has been answered before but for a sister following the shaafee school of thought. Is the ruling the same from a Hanafi point of veiw?

Jazakallahu Kahayr

Waalaikumussalam warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.
Bismillahir rahmaanir rahim.

According to Ahnaaf, the colours red, brown, yellow, green, blackish red and black are all considered as haidh. Therefore, if the bleeding stops within 10 days but still discharge of any of the aforementioned colours remain, then it'll still be considered as haidh. However, after the 10th day, ghusl should be performed and prayers should be resumed even if the discharge continues and the law of istihaadhah should be observed.

And Allah knows best.
