The Valid Intention Of Fasting. by Taamas111 (m): 4:44pm on January 11

In Ramadan, we performed the Taraaweeh
prayer and bought our Sahoor (pre-dawn
meal) and prepared it. Nevertheless, we slept
and did not wake before dawn. Is that a valid
intention, or is our fasting invalid?


All perfect praise be to Allah, the Lord of the
Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of
worship except Allah, and that Muhammad
is His Slave and Messenger.
Buying Sahoor and preparing it imply the
intention of fasting the next day.
Consequently, your fasting is valid, and the
fact that you slept and did not eat Sahoor
does not invalidate it.
Ibn Taymiyyah said, “The intention of
fasting in Ramadan, according to the
consensus of scholars, does not require one
to say, ‘I am fasting tomorrow’; rather, it is
enough to have the intention in his heart.
The intention follows knowledge. When one
knows what he wants to do, he must intend
it. Consequently, when the Muslim knows
that Ramadan will be from the next day and
he is among those required to fast, he
naturally intends fasting. Likewise, when he
knows that ‘Eed will be the next day, he (by
default) will intend - that night - not to fast.”
Allah Knows best.
