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]?
[Statements] have recently appeared – particularly via means of communication – from those who say there is no evidence to support fasting six days in Shawwaal, and [instead] it has come to interrupt the ‘Eed of the Muslims, so what is your opinion regarding this speech?
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.
