Intention when making qadha salaah

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: Regarding qadha salaah (missed prayers):

What is the full intention to make before one performs a qadha salaah (Note: the intention for ample salaah missed not just a single salaah). I am fearful that if my intention is incorrect my qadha salaah wont be accepted. Many books have the intention for only missing one prayer. 

To my knowledge the intention is “O Allah, I am reading the 1st fajr of those that I have missed” but I am unsure if it is correct.


A: The intention stated is correct.

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