Q: Some scholars say that it is permissible for a woman to eat and drink if she gets her menses during fasting but some scholars say that if a woman gets her menses while fasting then she should not eat and drink until the fast opens. Please clarify.
A: It is permissible for her to eat and drink provided it is not done in public.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
