What is the status of partaking of Sehri?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by TheMufti.com

Q.With regards to Sehri, I wanted to know the virtue of it? Also, if it is missed, will the fast be valid?

A. It is Mustahab (preferable) to partake of Sehri (Shaami). Rasoolullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam said:

“Partake of Sehri, for verily there is Barakah (blessings) in Sehri” (Bukhari)

However, if one does not partake of Sehri or misses it, the fast will still be valid.

Allah Ta’ala Knows Best
