The Law of a Saahib-e-Tarteeb

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by


1. A person missed his Asr Salaah. When he found the time to perform the Qadhaa of this Asr, he realized that the time of Maghrib was about to expire. In this situation, if he performs the Qadhaa of Asr first, the Maghrib Salaah will become Qadhaa. Which Salaah should he perform in this time, the Qadhaa of the Asr Salaah or the Maghrib Salaah?

2. If a person missed a Salaah and the time of the next Salaah has now set in, which Salaah should he perform first, the Salaah that he missed or the Salaah of the time that set in?



1. He should first perform the Maghrib Salaah and thereafter perform the Qadhaa of the Asr Salaah.

2. If a person is a Saahib-e-Tarteeb, then he should first perform the Qadhaa Salaah, after which he will perform the Salaah of the time that set in. If he is not a Saahib-e-Tarteeb, then it is permissible to perform the Salaahs in any sequence. A Saahib-e-Tarteeb is that person who has less than six Qadhaa Salaah. For a Saahib-e-Tarteeb, it is necessary to perform the Qadhaa Salaah in sequence, before performing the Salaah of the time that set in. If a person’s Qadhaa Salaah are six or more, he will no longer remain a Saahib-e-Tarteeb and it will not be necessary for him to perform the Qadhaa Salaah in sequence.

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