Pregnant Women Experience Morning Sickness During Ramadan, Is Their Fasting Canceled?
Mother, even though fasting in Ramadan is a mandatory worship for Muslims. But it is flexible enough to tolerate certain conditions for those who cannot live it, you know.
Islam makes concessions by obliging to replace on another day for those who are unable to carry out the obligation of fasting Ramadan.
This is stated in the explanation of the following verse:
..وَمَنْ انَ ا اَوْ لٰى اَيَّامٍ اُخَرَ يُرِيْدُ اللّٰهُ الْيُسْرَ لَا الْعُسْرَ لِتُكْمِلُوا الْعِدَّةَ
“… So whoever among you is sick or on a journey (then he breaks his fast), then (it is obligatory for him to fast) as much as the day he left on the other days. And it is obligatory for those who find it hard to do it (if they do not fast) pay fidyah, (ie): feed a poor person…”
For that, for pregnant women who have difficulty fasting in Ramadan, don’t worry. Mothers can still replace them outside the month of Ramadan. Indeed, young pregnant women are still prone to nausea and vomiting, which is an obstacle in itself to continue fasting. Especially if you are already pregnant near the time of delivery, you are prone to fatigue because the burden of the fetus in the womb is quite heavy.
What’s nice about this information, it turns out that even if you have nausea and vomiting, your fast doesn’t just get canceled, you know. How come? Let’s see, Mother.
Didn’t cancel because it wasn’t on purpose
Member of the Fatwa Division and Development of Guidance for the Leaders of the Tarjih and Tajdid Council of PP Muhammadiyah, Lailatis Syarifah, Lc., MA explained in Surah Al-Luqman verse 14, it is stated that women who are pregnant are in a weak condition, categorized as people who have a hard time fasting. So, you may not fast because of your weak condition.
But for mothers who are still strong enough to fast in the midst of morning sickness , they are certainly allowed to fast because they vomit accidentally, Mother. Nausea and vomiting that occurs in mothers during pregnancy is not something that is done intentionally but is congenital to the fetus that can’t be avoided. Although it can be minimized by prescribing certain drugs from the doctor.
Mothers must ensure that their nutritional needs are met properly even though they are fasting. Mothers must continue to eat nutritious food for mother and fetus.
Don’t because of fasting, Mother becomes hungry and eats all the food on the table. Without taking into account the nutritional content that the mother and fetus need, yes.
