Question

Assalamualaikum

Can I keep a qadha fast/nafl fast/sunnah fast by drinking just water in Suhoor?

 

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

 

Answer:

Suhoor is recommended but it is not compulsory.[1] Therefore, it will be permissible to fast by only drinking water in Suhoor although it is recommended to eat.

The Prophet (s.a.w) said, “Take Suhoor as there is a blessing in it.”[2]
