Is fajr adhan is the cut off time of taking suhoor

Q:

Assalamu Alaikum
I would like to have some clarifications on following

What is the cut off time of taking Suhoor? . Is it immediately upon Fajr Adhan or can be extended for 5 – 10 minuts after adhan?

If I pray 2+1 rakaaths after tharaweeh, can I pray 2 rakaats before fajir adhan as Thahajud?.

A:

Thank You For your question

Answer 1 :

Fasting means that a person must, in obedience to the commands of Allah, from the time of Adhan for Fajr prayers up to Maghrib

Answer 2:

780. The Fajr Nafilah is offered before the Fajr prayers, and its timecommences when Namaz-e-Shab has been completed, till the time of Namaz-e-Fajrdraws near. But if someone delays it till redness is seen in the eastern sky,then it is better to pray namaz of Fajr.

781. The time for Namaz-e-Shab is from midnight till Adhan for Fajrprayers, and it is better to offer it nearer the time of Fajr prayers
