can u keep a kazaa or nafal fast without sehri?



Al-jawab billahi at-taufeeq (the answer with Allah's guidance)

Yes, the fast is valid without Suhur but to partake in Suhur and to delay it until Subah Sadiq (break of dawn) is Mustahab (peferable). (Nurul Idhah Pg. 148)

Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said, "Partake in Suhur as there is Barakah (blessings) in it."

He (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) also said,"There are three habits from the apostles of Allah Ta'ala,
1) To break the fast quickly 2) To delay Suhur until (Subah Sadiq) 3) To place the right hand on top of the left in Salah."
(Hashiyatut Tahtawi Pg. 682,683)

Umar (RA) narrates that Rasulullah (Salallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: "Those who eat Sehri, they are blessed by the angels and Allah the Almighty"

And Only Allah Ta'ala Knows Best.
