If a person sleeps until sunrise, should he pray the two supererogatory Rak`ahs (units of Prayer) before offering the Fajr (Dawn) Prayer?
If one is overpowered by sleep and could not wake up until after sunrise, he should perform Fajr (Dawn) Prayer when he wakes up and should offer the Sunnah (supererogatory) Salah before Fajr. It is authentically reported that the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) was overpowered by sleep. He along with his Sahabah (Companions) woke up after sunshine. Adhan (call to Prayer) was announced and the Prophet offered the two supererogatory Rak`ahs (units of Prayer) before offering the Fajr Prayer.
