Confusing Haiz

Asalamualykum. I got paak from a normal period on 22nd August,2008. Then during Ramadaan 2008, i saw a bit of brownish discharge on 26th September at 6.30 pm so i carried on with my roza but missed Asar, Maghrib and Isha. Then, because no other normal period symptoms were apparent, i fasted the next day,27th, and prayed all five salaah. The next day, 28th, again i saw brownish discharge at 6.15pm so i missed Asar, Maghrib and Isha. Again i didnt break my fast in case it wasnt haiz. I then waited till 30th September and because i hadnt seen anything at all i finally had a bath and started to pray namaaz. During this whole period in my heart i felt it wasnt haiz but wasnt sure what to do. A few weeks later i found out i was pregnant and my scan showed the first day of my pregnancy was the 20th September- therefore the few days i had spotting, was whilst i was pregnant. I appreciate this is a confusing mas'ala but i am in desperate need of a solution so i can determine 1) How many, if any, Qaza rozas i need to keep 2) How many, if any, qaza salah i need to pray. Jazakallah very much for your time. May you all br e rewarded well for your efforts for the ummah. Ameen

Al Jawaab Billahit-Tawfeeq

Respected Sister,

It was istihaadhah that you were experiencing, thus you will need to make up the fasts that you missed only and also the salaah of:

1) Asr till Isha of 26th September

2) Asr till Isha of 28th September

3) All salaahs of 29th September

4) All salaahs before you took your ghusl on the 30th September

And Allah knows best.
