If a fasting person sleeps all day, is his fast valid?

السؤال: إذا نام الصائم جميع النهار هل يصح صومه ؟

الجواب : نعم يصح صومُه ؛ قال في “المنهاج” مع “التحفة” :” ( ولا يضر النوم المستغرق ) لجميع النهار ( على الصحيح ) لبقاء أهلية الخطاب فيه “. اهـ

 

Yes, his fast is valid. It says in the Minhaj with the Tuhfa, “Sleeping the whole day does not affect the fast according to the sound position, because the individual remains fit for legal responsibility.”
