Qadha Namaz – قضاء نماز – of an old aged lady?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Jamia Binoria

What is to be done with the Qadha Namaz of an old aged lady? And if she dies in that situation?

الجواب حامدا و مصلیا

First and foremost, it should be necessary for any feeble, weak elderly person to try to perform the missed Salath even though by gesture while lying down. Along with that as a precautionary measure, may make Wasiyyath to pay Fidya on them. In this status if the person dies having made Wasiyyath to pay Fidya the inheritors become responsible to pay Fidya up to the level of 1/3rd of the deceased property. If Wasiyyath is not made it is not the responsibility of the heirs to pay the Fidya. However if those inheritors who are sane and major, on their own accord wish to pay the Fidya, undoubtedly thay can do so and it is correct and permissible according to the Shari’a. And it is hoped from the Allah the Most High that He will accept this Fidya and excuse the deceased.
