Making up prayers from when I was a non-Muslim…

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Qibla.com

Answered by Shaykh Faraz Rabbani

Asalamu Alaikum Waramatulahi Warbarakatu,
I pray this finds you in the best of health and iman. I have a question concerning make-up prayers. I’ve been a Muslim for 4 years now. In making up my prayers, do I also have to make up prayers from when I was a non-Muslim? In other words from the age when I was supposed to be starting to pray? Please get back to me on this soon as I’m trying to calculate exactly how many I owe to the Divine.

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Walaikum assalam wa rahmatullah,

I pray that this finds you well, and in the best of health and spirits. May Allah grant you all good and success in this life and the next.

A condition for the worldly obligation to pray is Islam. Thus, prayers (necessarily) missed before Islam are not made up. [Shurunbulali, Maraqi al-Falah]

And Allah alone gives success.

Faraz Rabbani
