Respected scholars, as-salamu `alaykum. I recently had a miscarriage and I thought I was 8 weeks pregnant, but when I made a scan, it revealed that the fetus had died three weeks previously. The question is: What is the ruling concerning the blood that discharged due to the miscarriage? Is it considered nifas (post-natal bleeding)? Should I pray normally? Jazakum Allahu Khayran.
salam alaikum,i recently experienced a miscarriage, i was under the impression that i was 8 weeks pregnant when i went for a scan which revealed the fetus was dead and they estimated that it was approximately 5 weeks old suggesting that the miscariiage could have happened 2 or 3 weeks ago. A few days ago i noticed a little bleeding on and off and a little bit of cramp, i stopped praying as i thought maybe this was the return of menstruation but now i am not sure if it is or if it is bleeding from miscarriage and i am not sure what islamic duties i should be doing such as prayer and reading Quran? Also is there an islamic procee dure or anything i should do regarding the unborn fetus ?Thank you
