Prayer in wrong time

I asked a question regarding my confusion with the Maghrib prayer. My brother made me realize my clock’s time was wrong. I have been praying at wrong times. I don’t know for long I have been doing this. All I remember is for three days so far. For two days, I read Maghrib prayer wrong. One day I prayed Maghrib twice(because of confusion). The rest were not on time due to clock problem. Do I have to make up my prayers?

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

You should pore on it. If the time in your watch was really disturbed and you offered the salah before the time of Maghrib then whatsoever salahs you have offered before the time started it is mandatory to offer their qaza. But if you started Maghrib salah while setting of the sun then too it is necessary to offer qaza. However, if you offered Maghrib salah within its time but you offered them late or you offered them after the time of Maghrib lapsed then in both the cases it is not necessary to offer them again. As in the first case, (offering it within the time but with delay) the salah definitely was valid though with karahat and in the second case i.e. after end of the time it became qaza though you have offered them with the intention of ada.

والمناسب ما فى الأشباه عن الفتح : لو نوى الأداء على ظن بقاء الوقت فتبين خروجه أجزأه وكذا عكسه ثم مثل له ناقلًا عن كشف الأسرار بقوله “كنية من نوى أداء ظهر اليوم بعد خروج الوقت على طن أن الوقت باقٍ الخ (رد المحتار على الدر المختار 2/ 100-101 في بيان النية ، ط: زكريا).
