I'm pregnant, do I have to fast?


Q: I'm pregnant, do I have to fast this Ramadan?

A: It is disliked for the pregnant and nursing women to fast while they fear for themselves or their child. They are to make up what they broke, and it is further required of someone feeding a child (while fearing for the child only), to feed a poor person for every day.
