Salaah while travelling in the state of istihaazah

Q: If a woman gets her period after 11 days and she is traveling, does she have to read Salaah?

A: If the bleeding continues for over ten days, she will revert to her previous haiz pattern and regard the extra bleeding to be istihaazah. In the state of istihaazah a woman will be regarded paak and she will perform salaah. If she travels, she will be considered a musaafir and the laws of a musaafir will apply to her.

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