Q: I have missed many namaaz in the past (as per my calculation 17-18 years namaaz). Now for the last one year I am regular in it. My question is regarding my qaza namaaz. I read that I have to perform my qaza farz namaz too. I read a short procedure of performing namaz too, in which I have to recite single time Subhana Rabial Azeem and Subhana Rabial Aalla only once, in Attahiyat short Darood shareef and in 3rd or 4th rakat Subhana Allah 3 times instead of Surah Fatiha, and Rabigfirlli 3 times instead of dua Kanoot. Is it valid? Do I miss my sunnatul Mukada and pray my qaza namaz and complete it as early as possible and then start praying my whole namaz after completing my all qaza namaz?
1. The Salaah will be valid.
