Delaying ghusl from janaabah in Ramadaan until the sun has risen does not invalidate the fast
Dear Brothers & Sisters,As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
I once had a wet dream just before sehri... it was not possiblt for me to go and perform ghusl rather.. i felt very shameful to go to perform ghusl... since my parents wud cum to know... so i had my sehri without performing ghusl and tha't morning unfortunately i even didn't pray fajr prayers... but later... i performed ghusl and i parayed by fajr prayers... but i wud like to know whether my fast is valid... 'cuz i think i went wrong here becuz i had my sehri in a sexually impure form.... Is my fast valid?

Praise be to Allaah.
The fast of one who has intercourse with his wife at night and wakes up in the morning in a state of junub is still valid, as is the fast of one who becomes junub in his sleep, whether at night or during the day. There is nothing wrong with delaying ghusl until just before dawn. Rather fasting is invalidated by having intercourse during the day in Ramadaan, from just before dawn until after sunset.
Fataawa al-Lajnah al-Daa’imah, 10/327
But with regard to your delaying the prayer until the sun had risen, this was wrong of you to do that. What is obligatory is to perform the prayers on time. Feeling too embarrassed to do ghusl is no excuse for delaying the prayer. You have to repent from that and pray for forgiveness. May Allaah help us and you to do all that is good.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
