Muslim women, prayers while in labor?

What do you do if your labor falls in prayer times? Do you still do them if you are not active labor and pushing or does the blood and fluid from birth excuse you?

  • I thought is was a good question. I'm not Muslim and I don't follow Islam but I found this post on another site.  Really I think it  applies to anyone who prays.

  • Don't Muslims have to be clean while praying? That's where this comes from right? I think I heard that they can't go to the bathroom during prayer times, they can't fart or burp etc. or they have to re-cleanse themselves. So, interesting question.

  • Excellent question! Once you go into labor with bleeding and contractions you are excused from prayer until after the child is born and the postpardom bleeding has completed.

    So, then is a woman also excused from prayer time when menstruating?

  • MamaK88-
    Yes, during menstration we are excused, we are also excused from mandatory fasting, excused isn't really the correct term in English its more like prohibited but without the negative associated with prohibitated. Anymore questions??? :)
