Sleeping in the state of fasting

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by
I am a working professional of 28 and I have to work in night shifts too. It is the month of Ramadan and I keep the fasts for the whole month but after night shifts I cannot wake for too long as the night duties in my organisation are too hectic. So I sleep at 0800 in the morning and wake up at Zuhr after sometime I sleep again to wake up at Asar time after which I don’t sleep more. Some people say that this kind of schedule will make the “roza” makrooh. I want to have your opinion on the issue. Kindly answer soon.

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

What people say is not right. Your fast is valid without any karahat though you sleep like this.

Allah knows Best!
