1Q. Is intention necessary for fasting? Is it allowed to make Niyyah after Fajr & before Zuhr as commonly believed?

1A. Yes, every act of worship needs an intention in the heart but one shouldn’t say it out loudly. And it is not necessary for one to wake up at  Suhoor  to make the Niyyah everyday. Rather, one can have it the night before or at the start of Ramadan for the entire month.
