A pregnant woman fasting in spite of her bleeding

Q: A woman's fetus remained in her uterus for six months. On the eighth day of the blessed month of Ramadan, she bled but the blood was no more than the amount of a cup of tea discharged from her. This bleeding continued day after day. On the twenty-eighth day of Ramadan, the fetus was taken out from her uterus (by a medical operation).The question is: Should this woman make up for the days on which bleeding occurred? Bear in mind that she fasted the days before the miscarriage and did not break her fast till the fetus was taken from her uterus. Please advise us, may Allah safeguard you.

A: The woman in question does not have to make up for fast. This is because the bleeding was not menstruation or postpartum blood. However, if the bleeding occurred one, two, or three days before the miscarriage, and there were signs of labor, then it is considered postpartum blood and fast is invalid in such case.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
