Completing fajr salaah few seconds before the time expires

Q: I would like to know if I read Fajr Salaah and after I finished, I saw the time was 5:39. Few seconds later, when I checked the time again It was 5:40 and sunrise is at 5:40. Should I repeat the salaah or is it okay and within the time?

A: If you completed the salaah before sunrise, the salaah is valid and will not have to be repeated.

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