Question: Is the menstruating and post-partum bleeding woman allowed to eat and drink during the day in Ramadhaan?
Answer: Yes, she can eat and drink during the day in Ramadhaan, however, it is better if this is done out of sight (of others), particularly since if they have a child at home then this would cause problems for them (in having to explain their condition)
