Does praying Tahiyyat al-Masjid mean that one does not have to pray Sunnat al-Fajr?

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
If a person enters the mosque and prays Tahiyyat al-Masjid, does that mean that he does not need to pray the two Rak’ahs of Sunnat al-Fajr? Or should he pray Tahiyyat al-Masjid and then do the two Rak’ahs of Sunnat al-Fajr?
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)

Praise be to Allaah.

If he enters the mosque and prays Sunnat al-Fajr, this is sufficient and he does not have to pray Tahiyyat al-Masjid. If he makes the intention of praying both, then that is fine.

And Allaah is the source of strength. May Allaah bless our Prophet Muhammad and his family and companions.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
