Irregular bleeding whislt fasting


What do the scholars and experts of shari’ah say regarding a pregnant woman who experiences bleeding during Ramadan? Is it permissible for her to fast and pray?


It is permissible for a pregnant woman to fast and pray during Ramadan, even if she experiences bleeding. Such irregular bleeding is called istihada, and one can pray and fast in this state. Sayyidah Aisha narrates that a woman enquired about her continuous bleeding, to which the Prophet ﷺ replied, “Pray, even if the blood drips onto the mat.” (Ahmad)

And Allah ﷻ knows the best
