Times of salaah

Question ID: 32076

Salaams. Please advise on the following:-

1) how long after the Azaan can a person perform the Salah.

2) does a person have to perform all Rakats (eg. Fajr has a total of 4 rakats. Is it compulsory to read the 2 Sunnah and 2 Fard? Or can a person just read only the 2 rakat Fard).

3) if a person had to read Sunnah Salah how many minutes after can the Fardh Salah be performed?

I am trying to get a better understanding of Salah.
I hope my question makes sense.

1) One may perform Salaat once the Salaat time of that Salaat sets in. The time between Adhaan and Iqaamat is given to allow Musallees to come to the Masjid. Besides Ramadhaan, when Maghrib sets in the time between Adhaan and Iqamaat is 3 Ayaats.

2) It is Sunnat-e-Muakidah to read the 2 Sunnats before the 2 Fardh of Fajr. One must not leave out the 2 Sunnat of Fajr.

3) Immediately after praying the Sunnats. This does not apply to the administration of timings of the Masjid, Musalla, or Jamaat Khana.
