Pregnancy & Making-Up Missed Fasts

Hanafi Fiqh

Answered by Sidi Salman Younas

Question: Does a woman who couldn’t fast during Ramadan because of the pregnancy and suckling have to make up all the days or they is other halal options?

Answer: assalamu `alaykum

Yes, a pregnant woman who was unable to fast must make up the number of fasts she missed. This would be obligatory upon her.

If you feel overburdened, make them up gradually, but also try not to delay excessively in making them up.
