Q: I am a Bedouin and I live forty kilometers away from the nearest hospital. In Ramadan, my wife felt that she was about to give birth a short time before the Fajr (Dawn) Prayer, and on our way to the hospital she delivered the baby and my clothes became covered with blood. It was the time for Fajr prayer and there was no (Part No. 5; Page No. 156)?water to wash off the blood. Some people told me that I should break my Sawm (Fast) as this blood caused me to be in a state of Najasah (ritual impurity). I did not know whether to break my Sawm or continue. Were I to have broken my Sawm, what is the ruling in this regard?
