Niyat of fasting after expiry of fasting time, is my roza is valid ?

Q:

Today I didn’t get up for Sehri on time.When I woke up its 50 minutes since expiry of sehri time. So my question is if I make a niyat then of fasting after expiry of fasting time, do my roza is valid ??

A:

Bismillah

Thank you for your question. For an obligatory fast you have to make the intention before the time for zuhr prayer and for a recommended fast you have to make the intention before magrib, in both cases assuming you have not done anything before the time of making the intention that would have ordinarily broken the fast, such as eating or drinking.
