Qadha Salaah

Q: A person has excessive (many years) of Qadhaa Salaah. Due to weakness, would it be correct for a person to substitute the Sunnah Muakkadah
before/after each Salaah with Qadhaa Salaah? For example, at the time of Fajr, instead of performing two Rak’aats of Sunnah Muakkadah, a person makes intention and performs two Rak’aat of Fajr Qadhaa. Or at the time of Zuhr, instead of performing four Rak’aat of Sunnah Muakkadah, a person performs four Rak’aat of Zuhr Qadhaa. Would this be correct?


A: As far as possible, don’t omit the sunnat-e-mu’akkadah. The other sunnats could be omitted.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
