Is it permissible to perform the Sunnats of fajr after the fajr Salaah?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I woke up for fajr and thought there was not enough time to read the sunnahs, so I read the fard. After completing the fard, I realized there was still time left, so I read the sunnahs of Fajr after praying the fard of Fajr, within the time of Fajr. are the sunnahs valid? Or will I need to redo them after sunrise?



1. After the fardh the sunnats cannot be read till sunrise.

2. It is mustahab and optional.

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