Fasting: Sleeping through the day in Ramadhan

Q212 :Fasting: Sleeping through the day in Ramadhan

A212 : If we sleep most of the day in Ramadhan, we are like deserters who flee from battle. There is nothing to combat when we are asleep, not even our feeling of hunger and thirst. When we wake up late in the day, it will be only a short while before we enjoy a full meal with several courses, numerous dishes, etc. While it is true that a person who does this fulfills, technically speaking, the basic requirements of fasting, namely, to abstain from eating and drinking during the day, he does not actually go through the experience of fasting.
