Sleeping after Fajr salaah.

Q. Is it a sin to sleep during the zawaal after fajr salaat? I heard it is makrooh. Makrooh tahrema or tanzini? Also during my exams if it gets very late then I study till fajr and its difficult for me to stay up after performing fajr salaat. If under such conditions I sleep at zawaal time will I get sin?

A. To sleep after the Fajr Salaah is not a sin, it is simply undesirable. It can be termed Makrooh Tanzihi (a light dislike). If one has stayed up for the night, then it is permissible and okay for him to take a rest after the Fajr Salaah. There is no harm in this.

And Allah knows best.
