Answered by Shaykh Faraz Rabbani
Am I allowed to make up my qada prayers in a congregation? I wanted to ask if you are allowed to pray Qada prayer after witr prayer? That’s what I do to pray my missed isha.
Assalamu Alaykum wa Rahmatullah,
It is not normally permitted nor valid to perform makeup prayers in congregation, because:
a) one is obligated to conceal one’s sins; and
b) it is a condition for praying in congregation that one intend the same obligatory prayer as the imam [Ibn Abidin, Radd al-Muhtar]
(i.e. very same prayer, so if the imam is praying a current Zuhr prayer, it would be invalid to pray a makeup Zuhr prayer behind him; if the imam is praying a makeup of Zuhr, then one would have to be making up the very same day’s missed prayerrare indeed).
