As Salaamu Alaikum,
I am praying the qada salahs of my previous years. For the qada salahs I make intention like this “Allah,of all my qada salahs until today I am praying 4 rakat fard salah of 22nd/ 35th/1000th Zuhr” . I say the number of the day (like 1st, 2nd or 1000th esha/zuhr ) because it helps me keep count of how many qada salahs I have made up. Is my salah and intention valid? 2. Few years ago I memorised 4 Sarahs of Holy Quran like Sarah Yasin, Sura Ar Rahman. In these years, I have not practiced those and as a result I have forgotten some parts of it. I have recently come to know that forgetting the Quran afternoon memorizing it is a major sin. I have repented and asked for Allah’s forgiveness. I have decided to memorize those surahs again. My question is, will it be enough to memories those surahs which I once memorised, or do I have to memorise the whole Quran?I never memorised the whole Quran in my life.
Wa Alaikum As Salaam,
Bismillahi wa billahi At Tawfeeq
- In the interest of keeping things simple, we advise you to make the following intention instead. We will use Zuhr Salah as an example here. Say: ‘Oh Allah I intend to pray the Qadha of the first Zuhr Salah that is wajib upon me.
In this way, In Sha Allah you will not become confused.
- No. You do not have to memorize the entire Quran, memorizing the surahs that you forgot will be sufficient
And Allah knows best
