  1. As-salam aleikum,

    I agree with this but would appreciate advice about how to implement practically. Our local mosque prays Fajr jamat 2 hours (about 3.30am) after the start time of Fajr on the timetable (about 1.30am). Sometimes I fall asleep while waiting after eating Sehri and miss Fajr. After Taraweeh (about 11.30pm), there is not enough time to sleep without a danger of missing Sehri too.

    Any advice for this situation?
