Making up for missed Salaahs

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I know I have missed prayers before and now that I want to make up for it, when is the best time to pray the missed prayers?


A: Foregoing one’s Salaah intentionally is a major sin. If one had intentionally omitted one’s Salaah, one should sincerely repent to Allah Ta’ala for committing this major sin and make a firm resolve that one will not repeat this in the future. Similarly one should make up for the missed Salaah as quick as possible. Delaying in making up for the qadha is also a sin.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
