Missed fajr sunnah.
Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
My dear Assalam-o-Alikum...
Q. 1-Can I pray Fajar "sunnat" immediately after praying the Fajar "Farz"..e.g. I was late and just entered the mosque and imam has started the "Farz" I don't have time to pray the Fajar "sunnat".....
Some body told me..that it is allowed that U can offer/pray the "Sunnat" immediately after "Farz"
but the others have the answer...there should be no Pray "Sunnat/Nafal" if you have already finished your "Farz" untill the sun rises(full)
2-and if I pray FAJAR "FARZ & Sunnat" after the Sun rises....would those b the "QAZA" (After Time)
Wishing u all the Best.

Missed fajr sunnah
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.
Amr ibn 'Abbas related that he said, "O Prophet of Allah, inform me about the prayers." He said, "Pray the morning prayer, and then abstain from prayer until sunrise and the sun has completely risen, for it rises between the horns of Shaitaan. That is when the unbelievers prostrate to it. Then pray, as your prayer will be witnessed and attended to until the shadow of a spear becomes less than its length. At that time stop praying, for at that time the hell-fire is fed with fuel. When the shade comes, you may pray, for your prayer will be witnessed and attended (to by Angels) until you pray the afternoon prayer. Then abstain from praying until the sun sets, for its sets between the horns of Shaitaan, and that is when the unbelievers make prostrations to it."

In light of the above guidance of the Messenger of Allah(saws), the believers are prohibited from offering prayers during these specific times:
1. In the morning when the sun is seen rising from the eastern horizon until it has completely risen.
2. When the sun is approaching its zenith at mid-day, until it has moved a little west.
3. In the evening when the sun is seen setting in the horizon until it has completely set.
Your Question: Can I pray Fajar "sunnat" immediately after praying the Fajar "Farz"..e.g. I was late and just entered the mosque and imam has started the "Farz" I don't have time to pray the Fajar "sunnat".....
It is obviously best and an extremely preferred Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah (saws) to offer a two rakah voluntary prayer before the start of the fajr obligatory prayer. If one for any reason has reached the mosque and finds that the fajr obligatory prayer is already in process, one has two lawful options:
- pray the two-rakah Sunnah of Fajr immediately after the obligatory prayers.
- Wait until the sun has completely risen and offer the two-rakah Sunnah offer.
But under normal circumstances one should absolutely abstain from offering any type of prayer after the fajr obligatory prayer until the sun has completely risen.
Abu Sa'eed reported that the Prophet (saws), said, "There is no prayer after the morning (fajr) prayer until the sun rises." (Related by al-Bukhari and Muslim.)
Your Question: .and if I pray FAJAR "FARZ & Sunnat" after the Sun rises....would those b the "QAZA" (After Time)
The time for the fajr prayer starts at the break of dawn and ends when the sun begins to rise; thus if one has offered their obligatory fard or sunnah fajr prayer after the sun has risen it would definitely be qadha or delayed beyond its prescribed time.
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.
