Ramadan FAQ #21: Can I Not Fast If I Missed My Sahur?

No (sorry).

Although sahur is a highly encouraged sunnah, it is not a condition of fasting. One should still fast even if one did not take the sahur (even if you had slept through the alarm – I mean even if the alarm clock did not even make a squeak). Not fasting simply because one did not take sahur is not permissible and is considered a sin (even if it’s the alarm clock’s fault).
