Repeating Isha Fardh Salah Twice

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by DarulIftaBirmingham

Answered by: Alimah Umm Abdullah


I prayed Isha already then went to bed. I woke up later in the night prayed Isha again thinking I didn’t pray. It was when I finished praying that I remembered that I had already prayed before going to bed.

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful


If a person offered his Fardh Salaah and then prayed it again, it will be considered a Nafl prayer. [1]

Only Allah Ta’ala knows best
