Miscarrying after 27 days


A woman miscarried after 27 days of her pregnancy, what is the ruling pertaining to the blood that exits from her uterus?


The blood that exits from her after 27 days is not considered Nifaas (postpartum bleeding) so she can continue with her prayers and fasting until she notices the signs of menstrual blood. When she does, she must refrain from praying [and fasting] until the end of her menstrual cycle, where she must do ghusl (shower from major ritual impurity) and begin praying [and fasting] once again.
