This is a little personal. I have been having my period for about 3 weeks now, and although it is unusual i have been waiting for it to end and it still has not ended. My mother wants me to start reading namaz again. She says after 8 days it is too long and it is a sickness, and that i should just start praying again. However i feel uncomfortable praying when i am not clean. Should i wait until i can become clean again or is it okay to start praying? I have already gone 3 weeks without praying.
