A person awakens and is Junub (in a state of major ceremonial impurity). There is very little time left before sunrise (Part No. 6; Page No. 156) which is not enough to perform Ghusl (ritual bath following major ritual impurity) and offer the Fajr (Dawn) Prayer? What should they do?
They should perform Ghusl, even after sunrise and then offer the Fajr Prayer, as Salah (Prayer) is valid only while in a state of Taharah (ritual purification). We are commanded to do so, as the Prophet (peace be upon him) stated,
If a person misses a Salah because they sleep or forget, they should offer it when they remember, as there is no other Kaffarah (expiation) for it.
He (peace be upon him) also commanded that one who awakes and then remembers Salah to offer it after performing the required Taharah.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
