Performing fajr Salaah before sunrise

Q: I am suffering from OCD (waswasa) and when I wake up for fajr prayer, I see the sky is light and I always think I am praying fajr in forbidden time. Is this the valid time for fajr? Please clarify.

A: If the salaah was performed before sunrise, then it was performed in its time.

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