🕌Making up Missed Prayers

Making up prayers missed intentionally or unintentionally is called qada’ in Arabic.  

1️⃣ We will discuss making up the salah if you missed it unintentionally.  A person who misses a salah is responsible for performing it no matter how late he remembers it.  

🔸If a person misses the prayer :

▫️He missed it for a reason, such as falling asleep or forgetting it. 

although you are basically very keen to perform the prayer on time.

There is no sin on him in this case, but he has to make it up when he wakes up or remembers it. 

The Prophet, may the mercy and blessings of Allah be upon him, said:

“If anyone misses a salah, he must pray it when he remembers it.  There is no expiation except the salah itself.”[ 1]

For example, if you remember at the time of Asr that you have missed Dhuhr, you should make up Dhuhr and then pray Asr.


✅✅ ✅ Method

If you sleep through a salah, meaning the time for that prayer has passed and you have slept through it, you must make wudoo upon waking up and offer it.  One night, during a journey with the Prophet, some people said, ‘If only the Prophet would take rest with us during the last hours of the night.’  He replied, ‘I am afraid you will sleep and miss the Fajr salah.’  Bilal said, ‘I will wake you up.’  They all went to sleep, but Bilal also fell asleep!  The Prophet woke up when the sun began to rise and said, ‘O Bilal, what happened to your statement?’  He replied, ‘I have never slept so much!’  The Prophet, may the mercy and blessings of Allah be upon him, said, ‘Allah took our souls when He wished and released them when He wished.  O Bilal, get up and call the Adhan for prayer.’  The Prophet then made wudoo and when the sun came up completely, he stood up and prayed.[ 2]

📣📣 TAKE Care👇👇

🚫🚫This does not mean that a person should sleep deliberately when a prayer is due, until he misses it, then use sleep as an excuse, or neglect a means that would help him to do the prayer, and then take that as an excuse.❌❌

 Rather he must make use of all the means he can, as the Messenger (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) did in this case, when he appointed one person to stay awake and wake them up to pray, but that person was overcome by drowsiness, so he did not wake them up. This is the case in which a person may be excused. 

2️⃣⚠️When you miss a prayer deliberately.

🚫 This is a major sin, and it is so serious ❌❌❌

👉The one who does this has to repent sincerely, according to scholarly consensus.🤲
