Yes, it is valid. Evidence for this is the narration of the Mother of the Believers, A’isha (ra), stating that the Prophet (pbuh) was at times in a state of janabah due to sexual intercourse and not due to a wet dream and the dawn broke upon him, but he neither broke the fast nor recompensed. [Agreed upon]
