Is offering qaza salah somewhat better than not offering salah at all?
The qaza of missed salah is wajib and necessary. One shall be sinful if one does not do qaza or make a will before one’s death. All the four Imams and majority of Ulama have the same opinion in this issue. For details see Fatawa Usmani (1: 522-532)
Allah (Subhana Wa Ta’ala) knows Best
