Q: I really need help! I gave birth 2 weeks a go, Alhamdulilah! Do I have to wait for 40 days before starting my prayers? I’m not bleeding like it’s suppose to be after child birth? Should I wait,or just pray ,then when I start bleeding again stop my salat or what? Help me out please.


A: You will start your salaah when your bleeding terminates. If the bleeding terminated in 12 days you will make ghusl and start salaah.

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