Spouses having relations after haidh ends

Q: If the wife was ending her haidh and stopped bleeding for a whole day and made ghusl and afterwards had relations with her husband and after having relations, she started bleeding again… Will this be a sin upon the spouses?

A: If the bleeding stopped before the end of her previous bleeding habit, then it is compulsory upon her and her husband to wait till the days of her previous bleeding habit pass before having relations. If they have relations before that, they will be sinful.

However, if the bleeding stopped according to the previous bleeding habit or after that day, then it is permissible for the husband and wife to have relations. If the bleeding resumes after that within the ten days, the husband and wife will not be sinful.

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