Defnition Of Nifas-postnatal Bleeding:
Nifas-postnatal Bleeding is the blood that flows form the vagina after childbirth. It has no minimum limit. Whenever she becomes pure, by the end of the blood flow, then she performs Ghusl and performs Salah. As for sexual intercourse, it is undesirable before forty days have passed, since it may cause harm to her. Its maximum limit is forty days. Umm Salamah, may Allah be pleased with her, said: “the woman who gave birth would sit for forty days. I asked the Messenger of Allah ﷺ ‘How many days does the woman sit after giving birth?’
The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said: «أَرْبَعِينَ يَوْمًا، إِلَّا أَنْ تَرَى الطُّهْرَ قَبْلَ ذَلِكَ»
forty days, unless she becomes pur before that. (At-Tirmithi and Al-hakim)
Accordingly, after forty days, the woman experiencing Nifas performs Ghusl, performs Salah, and fasts even if she does not seem to be pure yet, in which case she follows the rules for case of Mustahadhah-Menstruation.
According to some of the people of knowledge, the woman experiencing Nifas should wait for fifty or sixty days. However, waiting for only forty days is safer for her religions.
Purity can be recognized by two things:
- 1: The White, clear, discharge which comes out indicating purity.
- 2: The drying. This means that she inserts a piece of cotton for absorption. She should do this before going to sleep, when she awakes she can inspect it to see if she has become pure or not.
