Q666: Bleeding after miscarriage; namaz or not?

Salam maulana, my wifes had a miscarriage after 10 weeks pregnancy, does she have to pray namaz as she’s bleeding? Jk


She shudn’t pray for her usual days of haidh, eg6/7. After that she has to pray even if bleeding continues. This miscarriage is of foetus, the rooh had not been breathed in as yet, thus the bleeding will be classed as haidh.

If the baby was over 16 weeks, then rooh would have been breathed in and the baby would have been complete and the bleeding would have been classed as nifaas. The maximum period of nifas is 40 days.
