Seeing brown discharge after haidh

Q: I have a question regarding haidh

1. I get a brown discharge all the time sometimes it's light sometimes dark. So because of this, as soon as 15 days are up since my last haidh and I see this brown discharge I start counting it as my haidh even if I'm not bleeding but I was told I'm counting wrong I must count it 20 clean days and 10 napaak days because I never had a completely clean 15 days without spotting. As far as I can remember I always had discharges in my clean days. How am I supposed to count my days?

2. If I have to count it 20 clean days then to get my days right by re counting the easiest will be from after my baby wa born, that was 20 August 2019. She was born and I had a 40 day nifaas because I was discharging till the end and even after the 40 days were up I was discharging. How should I re count my days?

3. I don't get a yellow discharge all the time, it's occasionally. Does it count as a starting of a haidh if I get only a yellow discharge and during my haidh days if I get only yellow does it count as haidh?


1. If you had never experienced a tuhr of at least 15 days from the time you experienced your first haidh then you will count your haidh as 10 days and your tuhr as 20 days.

2. As above.

3. Yellow is also among the colours that are considered for haidh.

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