Performing nafl salaah between tahajjud and fajr

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: If I read tahajjud at 3 am, can I read any other nafil salaat. eg. Salaatut tasbeeh, haajat, etc. between tahajjud until fajr sets in.


A: Before subah saadiq sets in you can perform any nafil. However, after subah saadiq enters you cannot perform any nafil besides the two rakaats of sunnat of fajr.

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