Q: We read our Fajr salah, just the Fardh, a few minutes before sunrise... After Salam, we realised that there are still a few minutes remaining till sunrise to perform our 2 rakaats of Sunnah Muakkadah... Should we perform the Sunnah in this time?
A: According to Hanafi jurists, the Sunnats of Fajr should not be performed after the Fardh Salah even if there is still some time for sunrise. It should be performed after Ishraq - i.e. 15-20 mins after sunrise.
And Allah Knows Best
