Some issues regarding when to stop sahoor

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Fatwaa.com

Assalamu alaykum.Here are my questions
1.We usually check the time for fajr on Google and stop our sahoor at this time.Is this appropriate?
2.If the time for stopping sahoor has come and one still has food in his plate,what should one do?


Wa’alaykum as Salam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu,

  1. If the website that gives the time is run by Muslims, then it should be accurate in  mentioning the starting time of Fajr  (end time of Suhur) in your locality.
  2. Once the time set in, it is not permissible to eat the food. You may give it to others who are not fasting, or store it for when your fast is over.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best
