Salam, 

Last night i had a wet dream and when i woke up and discovered this it was 12am. because it was in the middle of winter and it was really cold i decided to postpone ghusl till later. I originally put my alarm at 4am and 5am but i slept through both of them and i didnt wake up till 5.30. Based on my local mosques prayer calender and other shia prayer time tables, fajr salah commenced at 5.40am,however the time to stop eating was earlier. anyway when i woke up and realised it was almost fajr time i sky rocketed to the shower and performed ghusl, however i still feel in doubt, is my fast valid or not? although most shia prayer times begun at 5.40am, sunnis stated that fajr prayers started at 5.20am, could they be right? i really fear that i may have to fast for 2 months as kaffarah which i do not have the strength to do so. Thank you

I don't understand Fajar time is 5:40 am and sunni start praying at 5:20??? is 5:40 a jamaat time or fajar starts at 5:40? these are 2 different things and usually shias fajar time is 10 mins before sunnis.

The Shi'a Jaffari timings are the accurate timings. Do not look at the sunni timings because they sometimes differ from ours. A person must do ghusl before fajr prayer if he is junub. Imsak is irrelevant, don't pay attention to it. Now let me ask you, you stated that fajr was at 5:40 am, so did you do your ghusl before that?

Yes I woke up 5.30 and literally was running at the speed of light and performed my ghusl in under 2 minutes

Than if fajr was at 5:40 am at your area, and you performed ghusl before that, than your fast is valid.
