Details of the Question
When time narrows for the fajr (morning) prayer, is it permissible to pray only its fard by leaving its sunnah?
The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

The prophet Muhammad (PBUH) gave more importance to the sunnah of the fajr (morning) prayer than the other sunnahs and wanted us not to leave it: "Do not leave the two (sunnah) rak'ahs of fajr, even if you are chased by cavalrymen." (Abu Dawud, 2/301, no: 1258)

However, if the time is limited and there exists a danger of not performing its fard within its prescribed time, it is necessary to perform only its fard by leaving its sunnah.
