Question

What is the ruling for a woman who wishes not to fast due to breastfeeding her child?

Answer

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuhu

Such a women should consult with a competent upright muslim doctor to advise her, if he advices that the fasting would affect her health and that of her baby, she would be excused.[1] However she should make Qada of the fast once she is able to do so.[2]
