Ibn Abbas on Pregnancy: A pregnant woman has permission to break fasting

June 12, 2017

Sa’eed ibn Jubair reported: Ibn Abbas, may Allah be pleased with him, said, “If a pregnant woman fears for herself and the nursing of her child during Ramadan, she should break her fast and in place of each day feed a poor person. She does not need to make up the fasts.”
