Al-jawab billahi at-taufeeq (the answer with Allah’s guidance)

Please refer to this: http://www.muftisays.com/qa.php?viewpage=viewQA&question=2589

All the prayers that you have missed during each year, you should make them up by doubling-up your prayers, meaning pray an extra five prayers (as Qadha) a day.

For example, when you pray your Fajar Salah make an extra Fajar Salah (as Qadha) and so on. Insha Allah, if you can do this persistently, you’ll complete all your Qadha prayers.

And Only Allah Ta’ala Knows Best.
