If a woman miscarries, does she

Q: Some women find hardship in delivering their babies. Therefore, physicians may be forced to perform a caesarean to make delivery easy. (Part No. 5; Page No. 420) In this case, the baby comes out from a place other than the vagina. What is the Islamic ruling on those women with regard to postpartum blood? What is the Islamic ruling on the Ghusl (ritual bath) that they should perform?


A: All praise be to Allah Alone, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger, and his family and Companions. They come under the same ruling as women in postpartum period. If they bleed, they have to stop performing Salah (Prayer) and Sawm (Fasting) until they become pure. But if they see no blood, then they can observe Salah and Sawm as other Tahir (ritually pure) women.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
