Question

Salam Alaykom. I am currently in the process
alhamdouillah of fasting for the last year's
Ramadan I wasn't able to fast due to my
period. I also have 60 days to fast due to
being pregnant twice. My question is: I know
I have to ask my husband if I want to fast
and then he tells me ok, is he allowed to tell
me not to fast a particular day, like for
instance I tell him I am fasting today (with
his permission) and then later on he says
"don't fast today." Should I obey him or
should I continue fasting since I am trying to
hurry and make up all these days that I
didn't fast? Jazak'allah Khair. Salam

Fatwa:
All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the
Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of
worship except Allah, and that Muhammad
is His slave and Messenger.

First of all, the Imaams of the four Schools
of jurisprudence and the majority of the
former and contemporary scholars
agreed that the women who broke the fast
for a valid reason, like menses and
pregnancy are not obliged to make it up
immediately after the month of Ramadan and
that they have time until the next Ramadan
comes. However, it is not permissible for
them to delay it until the month of Sha'baan
of the next year is over.
Therefore, a woman who has to make up
some missed days of Ramadan and her
husband is present with her and he has a
need for sexual intercourse with her, then
she should not hasten to make up for the
missed days except with his permission since
there is plenty of time to do so. However, if
there is not much time left to make up the
fasting, then a wife is not obliged to seek the
permission of her husband in order to fast,
and he has no right to prevent her from
fasting the days she is obliged to make up
since there is not much time left for doing
so. When the scholars interpreted the
Hadeeth " It is not permissible for a woman
to fast when her husband is present except
with his permission. ", they interpreted the
expression "except with his permission" to
mean optional fasting other than the missed
days of Ramadan; the same thing applies to
the obligatory fasting when there is not
much time left to make it up [i.e. that she
does not need to seek his permission].

Therefore, you are not obliged to seek your
husband's permission in order to make up
for the obligatory missed days of fasting
when there is not too much time left [for the
starting of the next Ramadan], and your
husband has no right to prevent you.
Similarly, if he gives you permission to fast
and then he changes his mind and wants you
to break the fast after you already started
fasting, then you are not obliged to obey
him, as he has no right to prevent you then.
Allah Knows best.
