Waiting till the end of the Salaah time due to bleeding

Q: If someone started bleeding at zuhr time and had not prayed zuhr, they wait till makruh time of zuhr, like 10 to 15mins before asr and then pray zuhr. Then at start of asr they are still bleeding so they make wudu and pray asr. Now if they stop bleeding at asr time, will they have to repeat their zuhr or not? I heard there is a difference of opinion.


A: They will have to repeat their zuhr. If they performed asr before the blood stopped, they will also have to repeat the asr.

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