Suhoor is not a condition for fasting to be valid

Question

except ramadan can i go fasting like every monday and thursday with doing sahur like i could not get up for fajr and sahur in this case can i fast without sahur?

Answer

Praise be to Allaah.

Shaykh Ibn Baaz (may Allaah have mercy on him) said: “Suhoor is not a condition for fasting to be valid, rather it is mustahabb (recommended), because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Have suhoor, for in suhoor there is blessing.” (Agreed upon).
