Discharge during haidh

Q: I have two questions pertaining discharge during haidh.

1. I thought I had released discharge and went to check but when I wiped, it felt pretty dry and all i saw on the paper was slight dampness. the discharge i had prior to this was discoloured, so i believed im still in hayd. can i assume that the dampness i saw was normal dampness and that im still in hayd?

2. In another incident today, after i was done relieving myself and i washed myself, i wiped where my discharge comes out to check and i didnt really see proper discharge - all i saw on the paper i wiped with was dampness/wetness. can i assume that what i saw is just water from istinja?


1. If it is clear then it is not haiz.

2. If the dampness or wetness seems like water after making istinjaa then do not regard it as haiz.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
