A lady wants to know while she is reading her Tahajjud prayers & hears the Fajr Azaan, should she stop her prayers & complete that rakat? What about the witr then?

Dear Sister in Islam,
The answer to your question is as follows:

There are some particular times in which offering Sunnah and Nafl Salaah is Makrooh (forbidden). One of these times is the duration from Subh Assadiq ( early dawn) up to TuloĄŻ Al-Aftaab (sunrise). No Sunnah and Nafil is permitted to perform at this time except the Sunnah of Fajr.

One who starts Nafl Salaah at last night thinking that the Subh Assadiq has not appeared. But after performing one RakĄŻah the Subh Sadiq appears, should complete two RakĄŻah. And these two RakaĄŻah will not suffice the Sunnah of Fajr. The Sunnah of Fajr also should be performed. (Aalamgiri Vol: 1 P: 53)

The lady referred to the above-question, should complete her Tahajjud Salaah if Subah Sadiq appears during and make the Qaza of Witr, if she did not offer it, before performing the Fajr Salaah.

And Allah knows the best,
