What should a woman in nifaas do if she sees a yellow discharge?

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
What is the ruling on the yellow discharge during nifaas and throughout the forty days (after the birth)? Should I pray and fast?

Praise be to Allaah.

Whatever discharge is passed by a woman following childbirth comes under the same rulings as the blood of nifaas, whether it is regular blood or a yellow or brownish discharge, because it is within the usual timescale of nifaas, until the forty days are over. Whatever comes after that, if it is regular blood and there have been no interruptions in the flow, then it is the blood of nifaas, otherwise it is the blood of istihaadah (vaginal bleeding that is not menstrual or nifaas), etc.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
