A fatwa in English in which Sh. Muhammad Saleh Al-Munajjed answers the following question, "Is it mandatory for a pregnant woman to observe fasting in Ramadan and Ashoora? I advised my wife not to fast during the last Ramadan and she was not fasting because she was pregnant. She was anaemic when she was pregnant. She had miscarried by end of Ramadan when she was 12 weeks pregnant. What is the ruling about her missed fasting during Ramadan? Does she have to complete them before next Ramadan? Can she fast normally when she finds that she is pregnant? She always insists on fasting during pregnancy. Any medical proof will also help that the baby won't be harmed by fasting during pregnancy."
