Finished Salaam of Fajr at sunrise

Fatwaa ID: 271

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

I was praying my Fajr and before saying the last word of salaam to my left (الله) I heard my phone vibrate. I finished my salah and checked; that notification showed it was sunrise. Was my salah valid?

Jazakumullahu khayran

Also will the ruling differ if the time of sunrise was when they were doing their first salam?

Jazakumullahu khayran

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

  1. We take note of the details of your query. Your salaah in the enquired situation was valid. However, in the future, you should try to perform it earlier. It is reprehensible to delay it to the last minute.
  2. If the word “As-Salaam” was said prior to sunrise, then the salaah would be valid. However, if it was said after sunrise had commenced, then the salaah will have to be repeated.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
