Postnatal discharge: This refers to the blood discharged by women after childbirth. Rulings: The same rules regarding menstruation apply to postnatal discharge, except for the following: 1.The menstrual period serves as a time mark. 2.The menstrual period confirms that the woman is not pregnant. 3.If a woman needs to do some consecutive fasting in compensation for a sin and she has the period, her fasting before and after the period is deemed consecutive.

1-Intention to uplift minor or major impurity. 2-Possession of mental faculties. 3-Awareness. 4-Inability to use water for ablution. 5-Dry ablution must be with pure dust.
Dry ablution is a legitimate concession granted by Allah says in the Qur’an to His servants. It is one of the distinctive aspects of Islamic law and it is peculiar to the Muslim community.
Ghusul means pouring pure water over the entire body in a particular way, with the intention of worshipping Allah. ‘If you are in a state of ceremonial impurity, purify yourselves.’ (5:6).
The place where the wiping should be done is the top of the khuffs. If one wipes over the bottom or the back of the khuffs, one does wrong and the wiping is invalid.
To wipe over the khuff instead of washing one’s feet for ablution is valid according to the general view of Sunni scholars. It is a concession given by Allah to make things easier for His servants.
