Explanation of الطهر المتخلخل

Q: Can you briefly explain to me the maslah of haidh according to Imaam Abu Yusuf (rahimahulah) pertaining to الطهر المتخلخل.

10 days according to Imaam Abu Hanifah (rahimahullah) and 15 days according to Imaam Abu Yusuf (rahimahullah). Also, is fatwa given on Imaam Abu Yusuf (rahimahullah) or Imaam Abu Hanifa (rahimahullah)'s قول?

A: The mufta bihi qowl is the qowl of Imam Abu Yusuf. If a woman remains pure for less than fifteen days, then this purity will not be considered. Instead, from the first day till the last day will be regarded as if she bled continuously. Whatever her normal habit of haidh is will be regarded as haidh and the balance of the days will be regarded as istihaadhah.

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