validity of intention to fast


I have started to fast for my Qaza fasts of Ramadan. But the next day before Fajr i decided to not fast and slept with the intention of waking up for Fajr prayer. But unfortunately i missed my Fajr prayer. I woke up at Zuhr time and decided to fast and said the Fasting dua. Is my fast Valid?


In the Name of Allah, the All-Beneficent, the All-Merciful.
Wa-Alaykum Assalam Wa Rahmtu-Allah,

When you wake up, if you make the intention BEFORE Adhan Zuhr your fasting is valid, if AFTER, it is not.
