WHat should be done if one thinks she is pregnant during Ramadhan?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Assalam Aliakum,

Is it permissible for a Muslim woman to fast during Ramadan, if she miss her menstrual for two months, and she take a at home pregnancy test and it say negative, but she is getting pregnancy symptoms ?
Just in case she is pregnant so she will not lose the baby, or damage the baby.

Wa Alaikum Assalaam,

الجواب و بالله التوفيق

In the above case, the first thing the Muslim woman should do is to verify if she is really pregnant. Even if she is getting pregnancy symptoms, but the test proves negative, then it means she is not pregnant.

Seeing that this is the situation, she must observe the fast of Ramadhan, and at the same time continue to do the pregnancy test to see what is the result. If it shows positive, then she must consult a reliable doctor to get Medical advice as to whether it is best for her in that state to fast or refrain from fasting. If, based on the medical advice, she does not observe the fast, then she will be required to make up for the missed fasts when she is in a better state.

And Allah Knows Best.
