Faṭwá #1

 [Q]: When is the intention of the person who intends to fast made? Or when is the intention for fasting made?

[A]: It is necessary to make the intention for the compulsory fast before Fajr. As for supererogatory fasts, then whenever the intention is made, even if it was done after sunrise, so long as he didn’t eat or drink, his fast is valid.
