Salah , ritual Islamic prayer , prescribed five times daily: Fajr – the dawn prayer . It is two Rakat Salah . Dhuhr – the early afternoon prayer . It is four Rakat Salah . Asr – the late afternoon prayer . It is four Rakat Salah . Maghrib – the sunset prayer . It is three Rakat Salah . Isha’a – the night prayer .
The five daily prayers include: Fajr (sunrise prayer ), Dhuhr (noon prayer ), Asr (afternoon prayer ), Maghrib (sunset prayer ), and Isha (night prayer ). Each prayer has a specific window of time in which it must be completed.
Allah places importance on performing each of the five daily prayers during their designated times – none more so than Fajr , or dawn, prayer . The sermon will tell worshippers that Fajr prayer is so important that Allah named a chapter in the Quran after it.
Fajr is prayed early in the morning, as or even before people begin to awake, and just before the birds begin to chirp. The world is silent . And the prayer is out loud .
In Islamic tradition, Muslims perform five formal prayers at specified times each day. For people who miss a prayer for any reason, the tradition allows the prayer to be made up at a later time without it automatically counting as a sin that cannot be rectified.
What is the ruling if I only pray Fard prayers according to Islamic laws? The ruling is that there’s no sin on the person who maintains only the fard (obligatory) prayers and skips nawafil (voluntary) ones. The Prophet of Allah (PBUH) was once enquired by a man regarding the duties of a Muslim.
God ordered Muslims to pray at five set times of day: Salat al-fajr : dawn, before sunrise. Salat al-zuhr: midday, after the sun passes its highest. Salat al-‘asr: the late part of the afternoon.
You should pray when the time begins and before it ends. However if you miss the time for whatever reason you still need to pray fajr as soon as you can it would just be considered late.
The purpose of the Azan is to invite Muslims for obligatory (farz) prayers , the salat (or what is also called namaz in north India). Shia scholars, however, do not subscribe to Sunni arguments.

From your question, it seems that 7 am is after sunrise in your part of the world and thus after the time for Fajr . So, you should pray Fajr as soon as you can after waking up.
Many Muslims put so much effort into just about managing to wake up for Fajr at around 4am or 5am, then rush back to bed. However, with roughly the same amount of effort, and a bit of strategy, you can actually do one of the most blessed prayers there is and easily pray Fajr on time.
The time period within which the Fajr daily prayer must be offered (with loud recitation of the quran) is from the beginning of dawn to sunrise.
There are the 3 things to do if you missed Fajr : 1. Pray Fajr immediately: Do not the let the Iblis tell you that you are a bad Muslim and that you do not deserve to stand before Allah, when in actuality Allah listens to you before you even speak. Pray so that Iblis leaves you alone with Allah.
Typically 15 minutes prior to sunrise should be enough depending on the length of Soorahs you intend to recite with the Fatiha. After Sun rising and before 12 o’clock you can say Fajr prayer but complete two Sunnat and two farz.
You can always recite at an audible level except when it’s required to recite loudly like during Fajr, and first 2 rakats of Maghrib and Isha. There are two views on this the stricter and unpopular one is that if you don’t hear yourself while reciting, your prayer is invalid.
