Q: Relatives are telling me that when my 40 days of nifaas (postpartum) are over, my husband should make a prayer or dua as it is what the elders have done. I am asking if this is stated in any hadith and if it is required to do so.
A: There is no basis for this.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
