Q: Does it invalidate or nullify the fast if you apply surma and sleep during the day? My father has been arguing that while fasting if you sleep during the day with the surma, it nullifies the fast as per some mufti he heard. kindly guide me.


A: It will not nullify the fast.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
