Faṭwá #3

 [Q]: What is the ruling on the validity of the fast of the one who eats or drank thinking that it was not the time of dawn, then it became clear that it was? Or that the sun had set, then it became clear that it didn't?

[A]: If it was unclear that it was the time of dawn, so he ate or drank thinking that it wasn't, then his fast is valid and he doesn't have to make it up. As for if it was very clear that he ate and drank after dawn or before sunset, then upon him is to make it up.

Shaykh Aḥmad ibn Yaḥyá al-Najmī (رحمه الله).
