Missing Fasting Of Ramadhaan Due To Breastfeeding


Recommended Posts

Q. Please advise on the ruling regarding a woman who is breastfeeding and fasting in Ramadhaan; if she does not fast does she have to make up the fasts at a later stage as well as feed the poor?



(Query published as received)



A. She will not be sinful for not fasting in Ramadaan due to breastfeeding. However, she will have to make up for the missed fasts at a later stage once she is able to. She does not have to give any monetary compensation.
