Bleeding piles

Q: What is the ruling regarding bleeding piles and salaat. Recently I was on a trip to Cape Town. Before returning, I performed salaat at the musallah at the airport where I was the imam. When I returned home I noticed that there was some blood on my underwear, which was from piles. I am not sure at what point the piles were bleeding. Please advise what action/s need to be taken, if any, regarding my salaat and that of the jamaat.

A: Your namaaz at the airport is valid. Since you did not know when the bleeding took place you will count yourself as bleeding and impure from the time you saw the blood.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
