Performing Fajr Salaah as soon as the time sets in

Q: Can I read Fajr namaaz after Azaan without waiting as we read maghrib?

A: If a male has a valid excuse e.g. sickness due to which he is unable to attend the congregational salaah in the Musjid and he performed the salaah immediately after the time of Fajr had set in, the salaah will be valid. 

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
