Q: If a person misses zuhur salaah intensionally and it is time for asr. So can he make up zuhur prayer after asr or before asr?.I asked this to scholar and read on islamqa.com which says it is a difference of opinion. The most sound opinion is it is not permissible to make up as qazaa salaah. I see a lot of people in India making up missed prayer after the time has passed but I tell them it is not permissible and they argue. Please explain.
A: If he has no other qadha besides the zuhr then he should read the zuhr and then read the asr.
To do the qadha is compulsory according to all the four imaams of fiqh. There is no point in arguing about this mas’alah.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
