Assalaamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi

It would be much appreciated if anyone could clarify the following matter:

How long is it after a woman gives birth where salaah becomes obligatory upon her? Some people for the indo-pakistan region state that it is 40 days where a woman cannot read salaah and some even say it is not allowed for her to exit her home, this is because she remains in a state of impurity up until then.

Please can anyone advise of anything from the qur'an and the sunnah that either supports this or refutes this.

Sheikh Al Allaamah Muhammad ibn Saalih AlUthaymeen-rahimahullah- was asked:

Q181. If the women with postpartum bleeding becomes clean before the completion of the forty days, may her husband have sexual intercourse with her? And if the blood returns to her after forty days, then what is the ruling?
A. It is not permissible for the husband of a woman with postpartum bleeding to have sexual intercourse with her; so if she becomes clean during these forty days, then it is incumbent upon her to pray and her prayer will be valid. It is permissible for her husband to have sexual intercourse with her in this situation, because Allah, the Most High says:

They ask you concerning menstruation. Say: that is an Adha (a harmful thing for a husband to have a sexual intercourse with his wife while she is having her menses), therefore keep away from women during menses and go not unto them till they have purified (from menses and have taken a bath). And when they have purified themselves, then go in unto them as Allýh has ordained for you (go in unto them in any manner as long as it is in their vagina) [Baqara:222]

So, as long as the harmful thing is i.e. is present, it is not permissible to have sexual intercourse, but if she becomes clean, sexual intercourse is permissible. Just as it is an obligation upon her to pray, she may do all that is prohibited to the woman with postpartum bleeding if she becomes clean during the forty days. Likewise, sexual intercourse is permissible for her husband, although it is better for him to be patient until she has completed forty days, so that the bleeding does not return to her as a result of his sexual intercourse. But if he has sexual intercourse with her before that, there is no sin upon him.
If she sees blood after forty days and after she became clean, then it is considered to be blood of menstruation and not postpartum blood. The blood of menstruation well known to the women, so when she feels it, it is the blood of menstruation; and if it continues with her abd does not stop except for a short while, then she will be considered to be suffering from vaginal bleeding. In that case, she was return to her normal pattern in menstruation and wait (without praying, fasting and sexual intercourse); then whatever is in excess of her normal period, she should perform ghusl and pray. And Allah knows better.

Jazakallah Khairan for the reply

Just to confirm - there is some Islamic basis for a woman not to pray for 40 days, if she is experiencing bleeding after pregnancy?

So, with regards to the other acts of Ibaadah i.e. reading Qur'an etc, will that follow the ruling of if she was on her menstrual cycle or is there exceptions with this type of bleeding.

I take it that a woman not allowed to exit her home during these days has no basis in Islam.

Please clarify
