last Ramadan I was pregnant and I had high
sugar, so I used to take insulin shoot 4 time
a day, therefore I could not fast whole
month but I paid money for each day, do I
have to make those day even though I paid,
right now I am feeding him so it is difficult,
please tell what should I do?
Second question, my brother in-law has a
son with a Hindu woman, and I told my
husband that this son does not belongs to
him and he is not allow marrying her unless
she accepted Islam, am I right and still he is
living with that Hindu woman without
marriage. And the son is living with the
Hindu grandmother. What my husband duty
toward his brother? Please tell us in details.
Third question is: When I was pregnant my
in-law was always telling me that I should
ask for boy, but I was against that because I
thing this Jaheliya, I told them that I would
prefer whatever Allah chose for me but a ask
Allah a pious child, I don't care about the
sex of the child, they said that the boy is the
crown of the head and the girl is the burden
of the head. I am very disturb about this
kind of thinking. Please tell me am I right or
they are right?

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.
If the reason for breaking the fast is due to
diabetes then you are only required to make
up the days you broke the fast whenever you
are able to do so. Allah says (which means):
{…but if any of you is ill or on a journey, the
same number (should be made up) from
other days …}[Quran 2:184]. It is not
permissible for you to feed poor people
instead of fasting as this is only allowed if
the disease is chronic. If a trustworthy
doctor decides that you are absolutely
unable to fast because of diabetes for being
a chronic disease from which you are not
expected to be cured, then you can feed a
poor person for every day you break the
fast. If after that you recover from this
disease, you will not be obliged to make up
the days you did not fast, because you are
already acquitted by feeding a poor person.
However, if you broke the fast just because
of pregnancy or breastfeeding out of fear for
your child, then you have to make up the
days you broke the fast and expiate for each
day by feeding a poor person. Nonetheless,
if you are absolutely unable to fast, then you
have to feed a poor person instead of

As regards whether you should feed a poor
person instead of fasting and expiate for that
as well by feeding another poor person, or
that just one feeding is enough, then we did
not come across any statement of the
scholars is this regard. However, in
order to be on the safe side, it is better to
feed a poor person for every day you broke
the fast and expiate for it as well.
In case you broke the fast because you
feared about your health because of
pregnancy, or because of breastfeeding, or
because you feared about your health and
your child's health, then you are only
required to make up the days you broke the
fast, and if you are unable to fast, you
should feed a poor person.
With regard to your brother in-law residing
with a marriageable woman without
marriage, this is something forbidden. If
sexual intercourse took place between them,
this is purely fornication and the child
should not be traced back to him but to his
mother whether this woman is among the
women whom we are allowed to marry (from
people of the book), or a woman that we are
not allowed to marry (like idolaters).
Your brother in-law should stay away from
this woman as what he is doing is forbidden
and this is well-established in Islam by
absolute evidences and no one can deny it. It
is not permissible for a Muslim man to
marry a non-Muslim woman unless she is a
chaste Christian or a chaste Jew.
So your brother and any Muslim who knows
about your brother in-law, should advise him
and prohibit him according to his ability
from this disgraceful conduct.
As regards what you have mentioned about
your husband's relatives asking you to
supplicate to Allah to bless you with a boy
and not a girl because a boy is the crown of
the head and a girl is the burden of the
head, this is wrong and something of the
pre-Islamic era. However, if they only want
you to ask Allah to bless you with a boy then
there is no harm in this and there is no harm
on you in doing so, but if Allah blesses you
with a girl then you should not draw on
yourself the Wrath of Allah as whatever Allah
decrees, there is good in it.
Allah Knows best.
