This monday i woke up late and i wrongly
thought that the time of salat fajr was
over.My mother wanted to use the bathroom
so i said to myself i will let her use it since i
am out of time for the salat i can wait
before doing it.I looked outside i could see
that it was still a little dark but i said to
myself the sun is hidden behind the fog so i
still took my time.But during this time my
mind was not clear sometimes i thought i
was in the time sometimes not but i chose to
believe i was out of time.I went to make
wudu and salat and later in the day i looked
at a prayer sheet and it said that i would
have had the time to do it because there was
still six minutes.I wanted to know if i am
guilty of volontary delaying salat.

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the
Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of
worship except Allah, and that Muhammad
is His slave and Messenger.

If the situation is as you mentioned in the
question that you believed that the time of
the prayer was over, and you delayed the
prayer due to your mother wanting to relieve
herself, then we hope that you are not sinful
because you believed that you had to make
up the prayer because its time was over.
Even according to the view that one is
obliged to immediately make up a missed
prayer, as per the opinion of the Hanbali and
Maaliki School, then it is permissible to delay
making up a missed prayer if there is a
sound religious reason, as stated by the
Hanbali School. Allowing your mother to
enter the toilets before you is a sound
reason, Allah willing.

Moreover, Allah will not hold into account
the Muslim Nation for things they commit by
mistake, or things which they forget, or
which they were forced to do.
However, you should try to wake up early in
the future in order to perform the Fajr
prayer at its prescribed fixed time and with
the congregation in the mosque if possible.

Allah Knows best.
