After giving birth and starting

Q: Does a woman have to make up for Salah (Prayer) and Sawm (fasting) after she gives birth or not?


A: All praise be to Allah Alone, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger, and his family and Companions. A woman must not observe Salah or Sawm while she is menstruating or in her postpartum period. (Part No. 5; Page No. 425) If menstrual or postpartum bleeding stops during the days of her menstruation or postpartum period, she should take Ghusl (ritual bath), perform Wudu’ (ablution), offer the Salah that is due at that time and observe Sawm. As for the Salah or Sawm she missed during the days she was menstruating or having postpartum bleeding, she should make up for Sawm only, not Salah.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
