Saying the morning berachot after Shacharit?


If I am late to shul in the morning, may I say the morning berachos after davening to save time in catching up?

The themes of many of the morning berachos are echoed in passages of Shacharis. These include:
·         Elokai neshamah and Mechayei hameisim in the amidah
·         Birchos haTorah and Ahavah rabbah preceding shema
·         Asher nasan lasechvi vinah and Yotzeit hame'oros preceding shema
·         Matir assurim and Mechalkel chayim in the amidah

Due to these duplications, halachic authorities contend that one might fulfill his obligation to recite the morning berachos just by davening Shacharis, even if this is not his intent. Therefore, one should recite the berachos before davening Shacharis. One who did not recite the berachos before Shacharis should answer Amen to someone else's berachos afterward.

(Rama Orach Chaim 52:1; Chayyei Adam 19:4; Mishneh Berurah 52:9; Aruch haShulchan Orach Chaim 52:8; Tehillah l'Dovid 46:2; Halichos Shlomo 6:7)

Have a great day,
