Being unable to fast on the 13th, 14th and 15th of the month due to haidh

Q: Whenever the 13th, 14th and 15th of the month comes, my niece gets her menstrual cycle, so she is not able to fast during those days. So should she keep those fasts after her menstrual cycle or just leave it because she can’t do it?

Bismillaah

A: She may keep the three nafil fasts after her menstrual cycle.

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