The conditions are four:

  • Islam
  • Sanity
  • Purification from menstruation and post-childbirth bleeding (nifaas) for the entirety of the day
  • Fasting at a permissible time

Fasting is invalid for a disbeliever, the insane, a child before puberty, menstruating women, and women experiencing post-childbirth bleeding.

Intention is a pillar of fasting.
