Answered by: Alimah Sumeyye Sofu




Is it permissible to pray if you have brown discharge after your periods?

No. Brown discharge is also counted as haidh.[1]

You should wait until you see clear white discharge or when the brown discharge stops completely, then you can start praying.[2]

It is not permissible to pray before that.
