Question: 

My wife is 5 months pregnant and is unable to fast. When the baby is born, she will be breastfeeding, Insha Allah which would make difficult for her to make up the 30 fasts before the next Ramadan. Can she give out Fidyah in this case? If so, what is the monetary value (roughly) of the daily fidyah amount?

Answer: 

She will make up for the missed fast whenever she regains her strength. She does not have to give the fidyah if she has made the qadha of the missed fasts. (Raddul Muhtaar 2/421-423).

And Allah Ta’ala knows Best

Question: 

Can I keep the six rozas of shawaal with the niyyat of qadha rozas as well? Is it true that, beside ramadaan rozas niyyat has to be made before subah saadiq?

Answer: 

1) Both have to be done separately. By keeping the qadha you will not get the thawaab of the six nafl fasts.

2) The niyyat for nafl fasts can be made after subuh saadiq as well, as long as one has not eaten after subah saadiq.

Question: 

What is the last time one can make intention for fasting, because for a woman this is important to know especially if she thinks that ghusal would be fard in the next few hours. I would like to know when can we make our intention for qadha fasting, waajib fasting and nafl fasting.

Answer: 

The intention for nafl fast can be made till nisf-un-nahaar (the halfway point between subh saadiq and sunset).

The intention for qadha has to be made at least any time before sehri ends.

The ramadaan fasts can be intended during the day.
