Salam! 
I would please like to inquire about fasting while severely underweight during the Ramadan season. My younger sister who is 30 years old and weighs 40kg is being told to fast during the Ramadan regardless. That is considered severely underweight for her age range and height . Should she still go ahead and observe Ramadan or make it up when she is healthier ? 
Thank yo!

WS. The decease would be determined by an expert and practicing muslim doctor. If he/she advises not to fast so she can drop.
I suggest her to fast one day if she feels normal so proceed.
