Intention when making qadha of nafl salaah that one broke

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I have nafil and sunnat prayers to make up that I used to break in the past and are now wajib. Is it valid if I make the niyyah of “2 rakat wajib”? Or do I have to specifically make niyyah of sunnat/nafil and which daily prayer they belonged to?


A: You should just intend the qadha for the namaaz that you broke.

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