Question:

Is it fardh and obligatory for a pregnant woman to fast in the month of Ramadhan?

Answer:

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

A woman in the state of pregnancy is excused from fasting in the month of Ramadhaan if she fears harm on herself or her unborn child. She may then make Qadha of the missed fasts later.[1]

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best                                       

 

Checked and Approved by,
Mufti Ebrahim Desai.



  و لحامل و مرضع خافت نقصان العقل أو الهلاك أو المرض علي نفسهما (أو ولدها) ( نور الايضاح، ص 200)[1]
