    Title: Breaking of fast

    Question: I know that if I started fasting, and then my period starts during Asr, or some other time during the day, my fast becomes invalid. So should I break my fast or continue to not eat throughout the day?

    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 1309/901/L=11/1434) The fast breaks when the menses starts. It is lawful for you to eat and drink after it. It is not necessary to remain without food the whole day.

    Allah (Subhana Wa Ta'ala) knows Best
