Performing qadha Salaah instead of nawaafil

Q: I have lot of qadha namaaz. Can I read ishraaq, chashth, awwabeen namaz? I have lot of fear. How can I overcome this?

Bismillaah

A:

1. Yes. However besides these Salaah which have been mentioned in the Sunnah, you should perform qadha Salaah in place of all other nawaafil.

2. Recite the following dua after your five daily Salaah:

اَللَّهُمَّ إنِّي أسْألُكَ الْعَفْوَ وَالْعَافِيَةْ فِي الدُّنْيَا وَالْآخِرَةْ ، اَللَّهُمَّ أسْألُكَ الْعَفْوَ وَالْعَافِيَةْ فِي دِيْنِيْ وَدُنْيَايَ وَأهْلِيْ وَمَالِيْ ، اَللَّهُمَّ اسْتُرْ عَوْرَاتِيْ وَآمِنْ رَوْعَاتِيْ وَاحْفَظْنِيْ مِنْ بَيْنِ يَدَيَّ وَمِنْ خَلْفِيْ وَعَنْ يَمِيْنِيْ وَعَنْ شِمَالِي

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