Prayers to be Made up

0 104


Feeding the poor and needy is an act that draws us closer to Allah. We earn His forgiveness, mercies and blessings through this act of charity.

“Anyone who looks after and works for a widow and a poor person is like a warrior fighting for Allah?s cause, or like a person who fasts during the day and prays all night. (Bukhari)

Question: Assalamu alaykum

What missed prayers other than the Fard prayers must I make up?
What times am I allowed to make up prayers and how many can I make up at a time?

Answer: In the Name of Allah, the Most Merciful and Compassionate

Prayers that Must Be Made Up

The only prayers that must be made up if missed are the fard (obligatory) prayers and wajib (necessary) prayers, such as the 5 obligatory prayers and the witr prayer. The sunna prayers are not made up.

Permissible Times to Make Up Prayers

It is permissible to make up missed prayers at any time except for the following three times.

(A) After praying the fajr prayer until the sun fully rises.
(B) When the sun is at its zenith just before dhuhr prayer.
(C) After praying the asr prayer until the sun sets.

When making up missed prayers at a permissible time one can pray as many prayers as they wish. However they cannot combine the intention of multiple make up prayers into one prayer.

For example, one cannot pray four units of prayer and intend the three asr prayers that one missed. Rather they must pray each individual prayer on its own.
