MENSTRUATION AND POSTNATAL BLEEDING

Women are excused from praying and fasting during menses or postnatal bleeding. They do not have to make up the prayers after they become pure from the menses or postnatal bleeding; they only make up for the fasting.

Narrated Aisha: The Prophet said to me, “Give up the prayer when your menses begin, and when it has finished, wash the blood off your body (take a bath) and start praying.” (Al-Bukhari)
