Sex and fast without ghusl
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Your Question: please advise is it ok to sleep with Janaba,
Ghusl or full bath of purification after sex is not obligatory for a person to be able to sleep, or cook, or eat, or leave the house, or do any other deed except visiting the mosques, prayer, and the recitation of the Quran.
Although it is highly recommended that one purify oneself immediately after sexual intercourse, there is evidence and allowance in the Sunnah that if one wishes to sleep, eat, or drink or do other chores before purifying oneself, one must at least do the wudu or ablution.
Sahih Muslim Hadith 603 Narrated by Aisha
Abdullah ibn AbdulQays said, "I asked Aisha about the Witr (prayer) of the Messenger of Allah (saws) and made mention of a hadith, then I said: What did he (saws) do after having sexual intercourse? Did he take a bath before going to sleep or did he sleep before taking a bath? She said: He (saws) did all these. Sometimes he (saws) took a bath and then slept, and sometimes he (saws) performed ablution only and went to sleep. I (the narrator) said: Praise be to Allah Who has made things easy (for the believers in the deen).
If one does not wish to perform the ghusl immediately after sex for any reason, it would be better and purer for them to perform the wudu (ablution) and go about ones chores or duties, and perform the ghusl later when one intends to pray or recite the Quran.

Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 3.153 Narrated by Abu Bakr bin Abdur Rahman
My father and I went to 'Aisha and she said, "I testify that Allah's Messenger (saws) at times used to get up in the morning in a state of Janaba from sexual intercourse, not from a wet dream and then he (saws) would fast that day." Then he went to Um Salama (another wife of the Prophet (saws)) and she also narrated a similar thing.
Although it is highly recommended that one purify oneself immediately after sexual intercourse, there is absolutely no obligation upon the believers that they must purify themselves from the state of janaba in order to fulfill their fast.
If one wakes up in the state of janaba or post sexual impurity, there is absolutely no harm in that person fulfilling their intention to fast on that day.
Your Question: Will the Saum be applicable or not because i have cleansed myself only after i woke up in the morning at ???
In light of the above absolutely clear guidance of the Messenger of Allah (saws), being in a state of purity is not a pre-condition for one to start their fast, regardless of whether their fast is obligatory or voluntary.
If perchance one fell asleep in the state of janaba and intended to fast the following day, one should fulfill their intention to fast the following day and perform the ghusl or full bath of purification before they make themselves available for prayer.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
