OCD problem

Q: This morning I thought fajar happened around 6:35 so when I woke up around 6 I thought there was still time to pray. I went and made wudu and I am kind of sure that the sky was dark but there was like a very faint light when I started. I didn’t think it was that late so I started praying. I struggle with OCD so it takes me a while to pray even four rakaat and when I was done the sky was still dark but it was a lighter blue colour. Did I pray at a forbidden time? Did my namaaz not count? I am so doubtful and my OCD makes everything so hard can you please tell me what I should do? If I have to repent or make it up do I read the prayer of repentance after making wudu?


A: If you completed your Salaah before sunrise, then the Salaah is valid.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
