Answered by Sidi Fadi Qutub Zada

What is the best time to pray salat al-Subh (Fajr)?

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

In the name of Allah, Most Compassionate, Most Merciful,

Wa alaikum assalam wa rahmatullahi wa baraktuhu

The Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) said, “Pray fajr when it is bright, for it is greater in reward”. [Reported by Imam al-Tirmidhi and others . Imam al-Tirmidhi commented that most of the Companions used to pray fajr at this time.] [translated by Sidi Faraz]

This is the recommended time to pray fajr for men. [Nur al-Idah]

Therefore, one should pray with the congregation in the mosque at this time. If, however, the congregation is commenced before the recommended time, then one still joins the congregation and does not wait for the recommended time to pray alone or with a group at home. If one misses the congregation in the masjid, then it’s recommended for him to wait and pray in the recommended time.

Women, on the other hand, should pray fajr when it is still dark. [Maraqi al-Falah]

And Allah knows best
