Sleeping through Fajr Prayer


Question :
If a person slept through Fajr prayer, will Allah reward him for the remainder of the Prayers on that day, or not? And if he prays it after he wakes up, will it be accepted from him?

Answer :
It has been authentically reported from the Messenger Peace Be Upon Him that he said:
Whoever slept through the prayer, or forgot it, he should pray it when he remembers it ; there is no expiation required for it except this.
"Whoever slept through the prayer, or forgot it, he should pray it when he remembers it ; there is no expiation required for it except this."
Al-Bukhari no. 597 and Muslim no. 684.
This covers the dawn prayer and others. As for the prayers after it, if he guards them and perform them at the right time, sleeping through Fajr will not harm him and its reward will be complete according th his actions and his striving this prayer.
But he must not be negligent in this matter, and it is obligatory for him to instruct someone to wake him until he gets up to go to prayer at the right time, or he must place an alarm clock at his head, so that he is not excessive or negligent, and if sleep overcomes him., despite his undertaking precautions, then there is no sin upon him, and he must pray as soon as wakes up.
Ibn Baz
