Missed Sunnats for Fajr

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: When I woke up for fajar and after I performed wudhu there were 3 minutes left for sunrise. I therefore performed only the 2 rakahs fardh fajar and did not offer the 2 rakah sunnah. Was I correct?

Should I offer the 2 rakahs sunnah later?



1. It is correct.

2. It is not obligatory to offer it later.

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