Making up for salaahs missed while one was an apostate

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za


1. As a youth, someone made an oath to not do something and they did it, they then fasted 3 days to expiate the oath (as they were unable to do anything else). Later that person apostatised from Islam but came back to the Deen. Do they have to redo the expiation for the oath broken? No oath was made since that time. 

2. Also, in terms of salah missed, are salahs missed over years must be made up by someone who Apostatised but later came back to the Deen?



1. No

2. He will not have to make up for all the salaah he missed while he was an apostate. However, he will have to perform the qaza for the salaah he missed before he turned apostate.

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