Up to when can the morning (fajr) prayer be performed? What should be done when it is cloudy? Should we act in accordance with the calendars?

The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

The time for the morning prayer starts with imsak time and ends with sunrise. According to Hanafis, it is more virtuous to delay performing it to the time when it starts to dawn slightly but according to Shafiis, it is more virtuous to perform it early, when it is still dark.

If the sun rises while a person is performing the morning prayer and before he finishes the prayer, his prayer is invalidated according to Hanafis. It is necessary to perform it again after the time of karahah ends.

If a person who has not been able to perform the morning prayer in time performs it after the sun rises and time for karahah ends, he needs to perform it as qada by performing both the sunnah and fard of it before the time for the noon prayer starts.

Prayers need to be performed in accordance with the prayer times stated in the calendars. The prayers performed within the time periods stated in the calendars are valid.
