Performing Fajr Salaah before sunrise

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by


1. I wake for fajr twenty minutes before sunrise and I pray 15 minutes before sunrise. I am a bit depressed now that I can’t get up earlier. If you pray fajr fifteen minutes before sunrise, is my fajr valid.

2. If a person misses a salaah intentionally, should it be made up or not?



1. Yes, try and get up earlier.

2. It should be made up.

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