Bleeding and fasting during Ramadan
Fatwa No: 81592


As-salaam-aleikum. If a woman has an operation for genital area (uterus) and she is still bleeding, should she fast in the days of Ramadan? Or should she make up these days later as for menstruation and after giving birth?


All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.


If the blood is coming out due to the operation, she should fast and pray because the bleeding that prevents her from fasting or praying is only the bleeding of menstruation or the puerperal bleeding.

Allah knows best.
