Question 20: If a person enters the state of Janabah during the early hours of night in the month of Ramadhan and he goes to bed with the intention that he will wake up and perform the ritual bathing before dawn but he remains asleep and wakes up after Adhan, what is he supposed to do?
Answer 20: If a person is in Janabat during a night in Ramadhan and knows that if he goes to sleep he will not wake up till Fajr, he should not sleep before Ghusl and if he sleeps before Ghusl and does not wake up till Fajr, his fast is void , and qadha and Kaffarah become obligatory on him.
If a person in Janabat in the night of Ramadhan feels certain that if he goes to sleep he will wake up before the time of Fajr prayers, and is determined to do Ghusl upon waking up, and oversleeps with that determination till the time of Fajr prayer, his fast will be in order. And the same rule applies to a person who, though not absolutely certain, is hopeful about waking up before the time of Fajr prayers.
