I have been praying fajr after sehri ends but I noticed on the timetable this morning that fajr was half an hour later than end of sehri. but i think this was based on jamat times. I dont know.
What is the correct amount of time?

Also when can you read fajr till. If it starts at 05.15 can I read it at 5.45? whats the deadline?

Sehri time ends at the start of Fajr. To find out the end of sehri time and start of Fajr time, visit https://www.islamicfinder.org/prayer-times/


For precaution, you can stop eating early and recite a few verses of the Quran as mentioned in the Hadith quoted above.

Fajr should be prayed before sunrise. If Fajr starts at 5:15 and sunrise is at 5:45 then you can pray any time within this. In this case, sehri ends before 5:15 and Fajr ends at 5:45

The time for Suhoor is between the middle of the night and dawn. It is considered best to delay it (that is, as close to dawn a possible).

The Prophet (S) said: "Hasten the breaking of the fast and delay the Suhoor". [Sahih al-Jami`]



Zaid ibn Thabit reported: "We ate Suhoor with the Messenger of Allah and then we got up for the prayer. He was asked: 'What was the amount of time between the two?' He responded: '[The time it would take to recite] fifty ayat."' [al-Bukhari and Muslim].
'Amr ibn Maimun adds: "The companions of Muhammad (S), would be the first to break the fast and the last to eat their Suhoor." [al-Baihaqi, Abdur-Razzaq and al-Haithami; Sahih]



The Prophet (S) said: "We, the Prophets, have been ordered to hasten breaking the fast, delay the Suhoor, and to put our right hand on the left one in prayer". [Sahih al-Jami`]

try reciting 50 verses and time yourself :)

it takes about 30-45minutes if you must know. It's just better to keep an eye outside to see if the white thread comes apparent from the black one, then stop eating.

Thanks.
Eating is not the issue here. Its fajr time that im on about. The question was not about when to stop eating.

Sis none of us are scholars here, and I think this questions requires for a scholar to answer.

You can pray Fajr up till about the time of sunrise(Ishraq)
You can eat up to beginning of Fajr (best to stop 10-15 before)
