One night, I discharged semen so I became ritually impure. Then I performed Fajr (Dawn) Prayer without taking Janabah Ghusl (full ritual bath to cleanse of sexual discharge).
I did so because performing Ghusl would have delayed me from praying in congregation. Is the Salah (Prayer) I performed invalid or not? I appreciate your guidance, may Allah reward you.

One of the prerequisites of the validity of Salah is Taharah (ritual purification). Therefore, you must repeat the Salah which you offered without being ritually pure. Allah (Exalted be He) states:
O you who believe! When you intend to offer As-Salât (the prayer), wash your faces and your hands (forearms) up to the elbows, rub (by passing wet hands over) your heads, and (wash) your feet up to ankles. If you are in a state of Janâba (i.e. after a sexual discharge), purify yourselves (bathe your whole body).
You must repent to Allah, ask His Forgiveness, and regret what you did.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
