Assalam O Alaiqum, if a woman has miscarriage can she meet another pregnant girl before or after 40 days (nafaas). Some superstitious women in Pakistan believe that in such a case the pregnant women should not meet nor hug the women that has had a miscarriage, otherwise some bad luck will befall the pregnant women and she may have miscarriage. Please guide in the light of Sunnah.
