Question:I wanted to ask question on behalf of my wife.
she has had a Coil fitted for means of Contraception since many years. This has led to not having the normal periods as any woman will have i.e. 7 days.
My wife always states that she might have some spotting now and then just for a day or two or only mild bleed for again a day or two.
So in this case will this be considered as periods and will she be Najis and will have to do Ghusl everytime or not.
Please also clarify if she only has soptting for two days and then there is nothing then does she need to wait for 7 days completley to keep away from ibadat or not.

Ayatollah:N/A

Answer: One or two days are not considered period. It is called Istihadha. She do not need to do ghusl. However, if it was heavy bleeding, then she needs to do 3 ghusls, one for Fajr prayer, one for duhr and asr prayers, and third for maghrib and Isha, while if the bleeding is mild, then she needs to perform wudu for each prayer.
Question:If its Istihadha, can men and women have their relationship as normal

Answer: Yes

Question:My bed currently has some spots where there was najasat. At this time I am unable to clean it properly. If my bed is dry. Can I sleep on it?


Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: Cleaning it is not mandatory.
You can sleep on it, as long it is dry, and your body is dry.
If your body got wet, and contacted the najis area, then you need to clean the area that got in contact only.
You can put a sheet on the unclean area.
