Pregnant Woman and Fasting Query
Q1) Is it obligatory for a pregnant woman to fast in the month of Ramadan?
It is not obligatory for pregnant women to fast during the month of
Ramadan. But according to the Sharia, we permit pregnant women to
observe their fasting by feeding people at this period. They are to
feed people by given what is eatable for the whole day to the needs
till the month ends.
If a pregnant women thinks her fasting may affect her as well as her
baby's health in that case whether she can break the fast? If so, then
does she require to fast again for this after her delivery?
If after her delivery she is still breast feeding the child, the Sharia
still permit her to continue feeding people until she get herself back.
If a pregnant woman thinks her fasting may affect her baby's health but
not her health in that case she should continue obligatory fasting or
Allah does not want anything to inconvenience us in any way so He has
not make it compulsory for pregnant women to observe fasting during the
month of Ramadan until the woman finishes breastfeeding for the child
but she should be feeding the needs people till the end of the month.
