Fasting without suhoor

Fatwaa ID: 797

Assalamualaikum can we keep the fast without having sehri plz guide…

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

Suhoor is an emphasized sunnah of Rasulullaah ﷺ. He instructed us to eat suhoor for indeed there is barakah in it. If one is unable to have a full meal, he should have something simple such as dates and water. Notwithstanding this, if one misses suhoor or does not have it for whatever reason, his fast will be valid. He will be missing out on great barakah.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
