Missing Salaah due to sedation from an operation

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

QUESTION: Assalaamu Alaykum.
My query is on Salaah missed due to sedation from an operation. Will Qadha be obligatory on the Salaah missed under sedation?


Wa Alaikum Assalaam,

الجواب بالله و التوقيف

If a person remains sedated for a duration where five Salah (Fardh) or less have been missed, then the person has to make Qadha of all the missed Salah. However, if he remained sedated for a duration that five Salah came to an end and the timing of a sixth Salah entered, then he will not be required to make Qadha of those Salah missed.

And Allah Knows Best.
