Whilst studying abroad, a man abandoned the prayer for a number of years, and he [also] stopped fasting for three years. When he returned back [home] to his country, he repented [to Allaah]; so should he make up the prayers and fasts [he has missed]?
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].
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?
I am a soldier and Ramadhaan has arrived, so is it permissible for me to refrain from fasting, bearing in mind that my [military] duties do not help me when I’m fasting (i.e. he experiences much hardship)?
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?
