Ma’zoor during preganancy
Q: During pregnancy, especially in the last two months, the expected mother gets vaginal discharge. Sometimes she makes wuzu and just starts to offer 4 farz during 2nd rakat she feels a bit discharge as small as a 1rs coin (pakistani currency) . Does her wuzu break? Does She need to make wuzu again and offer prayer again? What if its zohr prayer and during 4 sunnah and then again during 4 farz she gets discharge? Is this vaginal discharge exempted because its specifically related to pregnancy and the last months and sometimes related to some days of pregnancy.
A: If she qualifies as a ma`zoor then her wudhu will not break. A ma`zoor is that person who experiences a breaker of wudhu, like passing of gas or urine incontinence etc. so frequently that from the beginning of the namaaz time until the end of the namaaz time he / she is unable to perform wudhu and read namaaz without that particular breaker of wudhu occurring. Once this is established, one will remain a ma`zoor for as long as that particular breaker of wudhu occurs at least once in the rest of the salaah times that follow. If she qualifies as a ma`zoor then she will only have to make wudhu at the beginning of each namaaz time irrespective of how many times the discharge is experienced. If she does not qualify as a ma`zoor then she will have to make wudhu whenever her wudhu breaks.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
