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.
