Q: I want to know what should I do if I miss a prayer in traveling? For example, the Zuher prayer is offered from 1 t 2 PM but when I reach home its already 4 PM. So what should I do in such a situation? Should I perform the complete Zuher prayer at 4 PM or only offer the farz (obligatory prayer)?
Note: It is a major sin for one to forgo his salaah. Sever grave warnings have been sounded for the one who forgoes his salaah.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
