Validity of fasting whilst oversleeping for suhoor

Home / Fasting and Ramadhan / Validity of fasting whilst oversleeping for suhoor


Is the fast valid if we made the niyyah (intention) for fasting at night before sleeping but failed to wake up during the fajr adhan and even could not have the suhoor? This question is regarding the fast which is observed in the months other than Ramadan to make up for the missed fasts of Ramadan.
May Allah reward you with goodness.

Zaynab El-Kateb:

Yes, the fast is valid since you intended to fast at night before fajr even if you missed suhoor.
