Likewise, the one who is elderly does not wait except for death; so how repulsive of him [if he were] to persist upon falling into sin [while death beckons].
Is the pregnant woman and the breastfeeding woman required to make-up the fast [of the days missed in Ramadhaan] if they did not fast out of fear for their [unborn and breastfeeding] child?
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].
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.
She was pregnant for [about] a month and a half, and then aborted the pregnancy – unaware of the ruling regarding that; after she learnt about the prohibition [of aborting a pregnancy], she was deeply remorseful. So is there anything required of her?
Does the blood flow from a pregnant woman who has had a miscarriage break the fast?
Is it permissible for a pregnant woman to pray sitting down/seated, if she fears miscarrying [her unborn child]?
