I always feel weak and hungry during fasting and two of my pregnancy

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by


Assalamu Alaikum, i always feel weak and hungry during fasting and two of my pregnancy i give Alms to poor home or feed a person but my friend told me that after giving birth i would have to fast all my fasting pls help me in details so i dont make any mistakes in future.




Wa Alaikum As Salaam,

The allowance to feed poor people as a replacement of the fast is only given if a person is in a situation where he/she is sick to such an extent that there is no hope of recovering from that illness. The same allowance will be given to an old person who, due to old age, is too weak to observe the fast. Besides these cases, as long as one can recover from weakness or sickness, then he/she will make up for the Ramadhan fast after the month has come to an end at another time. Hence, in your case, you will be required to make up for your missed fasts after giving birth when you are in a better condition to fast.

And Allah knows best,
