Pregnancy Bleeding and Periods

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I will be going to do Umrah with my wife and have  found out she is pregnant. The problem is she is bleeding/brown discharge at the moment. From her previous experience this has lead to a miscarriage. Is she allowed to perform umrah as normal as I believe this is not menstruation? Please can you give me the ruling on this as I am confused  and not able to find anything regarding this matter with pregnancy bleeding .

A: Bleeding during pregnancy is not menstruation. the laws of Istihaadhah will be followed.
