If their fast is considered valid and the couple still haven't made gusl till Zohr (Dhohr) is their fast still considered valid?

Please explain in detail.

If a couple have marital relations then fall asleep and wake up at sehar time, if they start fasting at sehar time without gusl is their fast considered invalid?

No, the fast is perfectly valid. The evidence for that can be found in the following hadith:

...A'isha said, 'I bear witness that the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, used to get up in the morning junub from intercourse, not a dream, and would then fast for that day.'"...

USC-MSA web (English) reference: Book 18, Hadith 11


If their fast is considered valid and the couple still haven't made gusl till Zohr (Dhohr) is their fast still considered valid?

Yes, it is still valid. The state of junub has no effect on the fast.

  • Waking up after Fajr without ghusl in Ramadan has no impact on your fasting, keep fasting as normal, as Um Salamah said: The Messenger of Allah, peace be upon him may wake up Junub of intercourse, and he did not break the fast and did not compensate. narrated by Muslim.
  • the couple need to :

    • Do ghusl

    • Pray Subh (Fajr) (Kadaa)

    • Pray Duhr

Advise: It is Mustahab for muslim husband and wife to do wudoo after intercourse if he wants to sleep without ghuls, and that is stated in the Sunnah.
