What is the ruling on fasting for breastfeeding mothers in Ramadhan? The Grand Ayatollah Khamenei’s Fatwa

SHAFAQNA – The Grand Ayatollah Khamenei answered a question about fasting for breastfeeding mothers in Ramadhan.

Question: I have a breastfed baby and soon the holy Month of Ramadhan will arrive. Currently I can fast, but when I fast my milk dries up; considering that I am weak and my baby wants milk every ten minutes, what is my duty?

The Grand Ayatollah Khamenei: If you fear for your baby that due to fasting your milk is not sufficient or dries up, do Iftar (eat; no need to fast), but for every day (missed) pay the specific amount of food to poor, and do Qadha fasting (fast missed days) later on.
