My wife, who is currently breast feeding, has three or four Ramadhaan’s worth of fasts to make up as she was unable to fast them because she was either pregnant or breastfeeding [at the time].
For three years my wife has been giving birth at the beginning of the month of Ramadhaan and [as such] has not fasted three Ramadhaans. Advice us as to what is the expiation?
A woman who gave birth finds her postpartum bleeding has ceased within a week [of giving birth] and then purifies herself, thereafter she fasts alongside the rest of the Muslims in Ramadhaan for a number of days, but then her bleeding starts up again – should she then refrain from fasting in this condition?
When is it permissible for the pregnant and breastfeeding women to refrain from fasting in Ramadhaan?
There is a woman who was nine months pregnant when Ramadhaan arrived, and at the beginning of the month discharge, not blood, would flow from her and she continued to fast whilst the discharge flowed.
I am a young married woman and Allaah has blessed me with twin boys. I completed my [legislated] forty days post-birth (post partum) period on the seventh day of Ramadhaan, yet, my post partum bleeding continued beyond this time; However, the colour of my post partum blood had changed to how it was prior to the forty days (post-partum period), so what is the ruling regarding my [obligation to perform the] salaah and fasting?
The questioner says she had an operation on her throat and the doctor advised her not to fast the month of Ramadhaan. So is she required to make an expiation or [just] make up [the missed fasts]?
