Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by
My mother aged 68 years praying 5 times prayer from more than 35 years. Since from past 5 years she is also offering her leftover prayers but she does not remember how much she has offered her leftover prayers nor does she know from which age she has started offering 5 times prayer. Nowadays my mother’s health is not so good and she is unable to offer her leftover prayers and sometimes she also misses her current prayer. My question is what she can do for her leftover prayers and for her current prayers if she misses. Kindly guide in details and in English language.

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

(Fatwa: 1261/H-301/TH=10/1434)

She should assess the missed salahs. She will have to offer as much salah as she thinks she has missed. Also she should make the qadha of those salahs which are missed.

Allah knows Best!
