Not fasting in Ramadhaan due to breastfeeding

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I’m a mother. I have a newborn child. So I’m feeding him breast milk. So further coming ramadan, I would like to stop this ramadhan from fasting. So can I do it, is it permissible to not fast in ramadan? 


A: If an experienced righteous physician advises you not to fast then you may delay the fast.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
