As regards a suckling mother or a pregnant woman, if she is worried lest fasting should harm her, the majority of jurists are of the view that she is allowed not to fast.
Dr. Muhammad M. Abu Laylah, professor of Islamic studies and head of the English Department, faculty of languages and translation at Al-Azhar University, states: “if there is any harm to the baby if the mother stops breast-feeding the baby during the daytime or during the fasting hours, then mothers are allowed to break their fast and make up for what they miss of fast days whenever circumstances allow.
This rule is based on the fact that Islam cares about the health of the children as well as protecting them against any harm or disease.
Bear in mind that you should translate the moral lessons of fasting into practice. Try to serve the fasting people and share the religious activities of Ramadan with them.
Our Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said in a hadith reported by Salman Al-Farisi: “If any one provides a fasting person with an Iftar meal, Allah will forgive his sins, and save him from Hell-fire (in the Hereafter), and he will have a reward equal to the fasting person without reducing the reward deserved for him.” Some Companions said: “Not all of us can afford to give an Iftar to a fasting person. The Prophet, then remarked: “Indeed, Allah gives such great reward to any one who provides Iftar to a fasting person even if it is a date, a sip of water, or a jar of milk…”
