Purification / The ruling on bleeding that occurs during breast-feeding

The ruling on bleeding that occurs during breast-feeding

I want to know if bleeding normally occurs during breast-feeding, and is it pure or impure, bearing in mind that I pray and fast, and do not know if I am right or wrong in doing so? حكم الدم الذي يخرج وقت الرضاعة

Praise be to Allah, and may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon the Messenger of Allah, his family and his companions.

As to what follows:

 In response to your question, we say, and with Allah Almighty lies all success:

Breast-feeding stops menstrual bleeding in some women. But if a woman starts bleeding during breast-feeding, then it is menstrual blood according to the consensus of scholars, thereby preventing her from praying and fasting; and it is considered impure.

 And Allah knows best.

Your brother,

Dr. Khalid al-Muslih
