Assalamu alaykum

A sister has surgically removed her uterus due to tumor, may Allah ease her hardships in life and reward her. She doesn’t have menstruation anymore and would like to ask if she has to pray without any pauses during the month or may she follow her previous menstrual cycle.

JazakAllahu khayran.


Wa’alaykum as Salam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu,

In such a case she will continue to pray without any pause. Since she sees no blood, even though it was due to the removal of her uterus, the laws of Haidh (menstruation) will not apply anymore.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best
