Assalamu alaykum

If your period comes some minutes after a particular salat and you haven't prayed, what are you to do?

Do you have to pray the salah after the days of your haidh or no? And if you are to pray (qadha), how will you go about it?

There is no obligation for a woman to perform the prayer after having her monthly period. The obligation will drop.[1]



Only Allah knows best
