Missing the fasting of four Ramadans due to my pregnancies and nursing, what should I do?
I am a mother of two kids, & I have missed the fasting of 4 Ramadans due to my pregnancies & nursing. Now, I am pregnant with my third child & will miss 2 more, since I tried fasting before while pregnant but couldn't. Can I pay money to the poor to make up for what I have missed? And if the answer is no, then what happens if I die before having the chance to make it up?
You should make up the missed fast days according to your ability when the excuses which prevent you from fasting cease. Allah never burdens a soul with more than it can bear. If you die before making up all the fast days you missed, your heirs should pay money out of your estate in compensation for the missed fast days.
May Allah help and accept your fasting.
