Can I Pray Fajr After Sunrise?

If you have overslept and were wondering if you can pray the Fajr after sunrise , this article will clarify the answer to your question.

The Muslim must be mindful of performing the prayer on time; Allâh Almighty said: {When the prayers are over, remember Allah—whether you are standing, sitting, or lying down. But when you are secure, establish regular prayers. Indeed, performing prayers is a duty on the believers at the appointed times.} [An-Nisa’: 103]. 

If you did not get up on time, you can pray the Fajr prayer after sunrise, and there is no sin on you. Anas ibn Malik reported: The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Whoever forgets a prayer should pray it when he remembers. There is no expiation other than this. 

The Muslim should take all the reasons that make him perform the prayer at its time, and if he wants to pray Fajr at its time, he must find a way to ensure that he would wake up for that prayer, like setting an alarm clock or asking someone to wake him up.

Performing the two Rakat of Fajr after its time has passed

Performing the two Rakat of Fajr after its time has passed and the sun has risen: It is from the Sunnah that a person begins the two Rakats of Fajr and then performs the obligatory Subh prayer. It is what the Messenger of God -peace be upon him- did when he missed the morning prayer on one of his journeys and he and the companions did not wake up until the sun rose.

Prayer is the main pillar on which the Islamic religion is built, and it is the first worship for which God – Almighty – will call His servants to account on the Day of Resurrection, and the morning prayer, especially among the prayers, has a different meaning from the other prayers.

How fajr time is calculated ?

The time of the Fajr prayer is to be calculated by estimating the time it takes for the sun to rise from below the horizon with the beginning of the first ray of light (scattered) from it while it is still below the horizon. In other words, the time of the fajr call to prayer is the time that remains until the sun rises, starting from the appearance of the first ray of light from it.

How to know the emergence of the first thread of light from them?

This streak (white) is astronomically known as the beginning of astronomical twilight, which is when the Sun is 18 degrees below the horizon.

How did astronomers know this number of degrees?

This determination was made through elaborate measurements (light-sensitive devices that measure very small changes in the intensity of light in the sky (lux meters), etc.), establishing that the appearance of light begins at this point. Without these devices, it is difficult to determine this level with the naked eye, as the human eye is unable to detect very small changes in illumination.

For example, if the morning call to prayer is at five o’clock in the morning, can you know if it is now exactly five or five and five minutes just by looking up at the sky? You won’t be able to because your eye is not able to detect that small change in the sky light within five minutes.

Can i pray fajr before time?

I was wondering if you could pray Fajr before time,and i researched the answer of this question, and this is the summary of what i have found.

God Almighty has specified for every prayer a time in which it is to be performed, do not advance it or delay it without an excuse.  Allâh Almighty said: {When the prayers are over, remember Allah—whether you are standing, sitting, or lying down. But when you are secure, establish regular prayers. Indeed, performing prayers is a duty on the believers at the appointed times.} [An-Nisa’: 103].
