sister is asking,

00:00:08--> 00:00:17

she has a, I think a daughter or a daughter in law who's just found out that they're pregnant, and somebody has told them, you're not allowed to breastfeed while you're pregnant.

00:00:19--> 00:00:53

You know, forget all of that. Islam came to clear our superstitions to remove superstitions. So if there's no medical reason to stop, then inshallah there's no, there's no reason to stop. As long as your daughter is comfortable. As long as the baby still wants milk. Up to two years, it's fine. In sha Allah says I can offer
