Nifas – After Delivery


السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

I just had baby first of Ramadan and now bleeding has stopped, can I start my fasts and prayers. ? Some people say that I have to wait for 40 days to finish before starting to fast.

Alaykum Salaam,
The period of Nifas (Bleeding after delivery) doesn’t exceed 10 days. The rulings are mentioned in the link below.
Incase you haven’t prayed after 10 days or for the number of days missed after your regular menstrual cycle duration (you will understand after you read ruling 521 onwards), you have to recite qadha namaz for those.
