have also explained the rulings on loss of the foetus at various stages of
pregnancy in the answer to question no.
If a woman
miscarries a foetus and it has no discernible human features, such as a head
or limbs, then the bleeding that accompanies that is irregular bleeding,
which does not stop her from praying and fasting. If there are discernible
human features, then the bleeding is nifaas. The minimum period in which
human features appear is eighty-one days, as is stated in the answer to
question no. 37784.
If you broke
your fast because you thought that the bleeding was nifaas, then you found
out that it was irregular bleeding and you made up the day you missed and
the prayers, then you do not have to do anything lese. If you have not made
up the prayers of that day, then hasten to do so.
