Fasting while undergoing menstruation or post natal bleeding? by Dr Zakir Naik

the point of view of a woman who is

undergoing menstruation post natal

bleeding is it prohibited or optional

for them to fast the South fr and the

woman who are undergoing the menstrual

cycles or postnatal BD according to our

beloved partner service elements mention

in saber Hadi also in say Muslim that it

is forbidden for a woman to fast

who is bleeding due to in stress ichael

or post little bleeding so it isn't


it is forbidden and the reason is

because when the blood flows out in a

lady in a woman she loses a lot of blood

and on top of that if she fast it will

not be good for her health

so allah subhanho wa taala it is his

mercy that has exempted them and made it

compulsory not too fast

otherwise it may be damaging for the

health and Allah subhana WA Ta'ala does

not want to overburden any of the human

beings so that's the reason they are

exempted from fasting and even in the

middle of the day if the menstruation

begins left to break the fast even if it

begins a few minutes before sunset they

have to break the fast but that's the

compensate later on but if they undergo

in the menstrual period and if the

period stops just before future even if

they did not have a bath they get shot

they fast but if it ends even a few

minutes after failure they cannot fast

that should break their fast and they

have to compensate later on okay the

next query really is regarding a woman

who is pregnant or as nursing

breastfeeding nursing rearing children

why are they exempted of one of the

words of the Quran in surah Baqarah chap

number two Muslim 185 that if a person

is ill and travelling he can make up his

prescribed periods of day of fasting

later on so most of the focus most of

the scholars they say that these women

who are pregnant and breastfeeding they

come under the category of those while

so therefore if they want they can

abstain from fasting but there are clear

cuts a hadith in which the Prophet has

exempted these women

fasting mentioned in sun honglei maha

hadith number 0.667 that a beloved

prophet says the obligation for a person

to fast and part of the prayer who has

been lifted from a traveler and the

obligation for fasting has been lifted

from a lady who's pregnant and was

breastfeeding a beloved prophet master

assalam also said it's mentioned in son

and si in the book of fasting is the

mood to drool 74 that Allah subhana WA

Ta'ala has relieved the traveler from

fasting and half his prayer and Allah

subhana WA Ta'ala has relieved the

pregnant woman and the woman who's

breastfeeding from fasting so based on

these two hadith also it's clear-cut

that the pregnant woman and the woman

who are breastfeeding

they've been exempted and the logical

reason that one can think is because

when a lady she is pregnant or she's

breastfeeding the food she eats is not

only for herself it for herself as well

as the baby she's carrying or becomes

difficult for a baby then she the

exempted from fasting but if she's in

the early stage of pregnancy and if she

feels or she's breastfeeding and if she

feels that fasting will not cause any

damage to health and will not cause a

damage to the baby then she should fast

if she has a doubt if she can do it with

hardship as long as there's no damage to

herself to her health and the baby she

has option too fast not too fast but if

it's causing damage to health or the


it becomes harm for her too fast because

allah subhanaw taala does not want to

lay a burden more than what a person can

bear and in this regard that is the

reason Allah has exempted them later on

when they are healthy and they stop

breastfeeding or when the pregnancy ends

after poor little bleeding then they

have to make up for the fast they've

missed before the neck from that
