How to Make up Missed Prayers? (Shafi’i)

Answered as per Shafi'i Fiqh by Seekersguidance.org

Answered by Ustadh Shuaib Ally

Question: Assalam ‘aleykum,

Over the past 3 years I have missed many prayers. How can I make them up?

Answer: Assalam’aleykum,

In the Shafi’i school, one must make up all missed obligatory prayers. This is accomplished by performing them just as they were supposed to be. A missed Fajr prayer will therefore be two units (rak’ah) of prayer; Dhuhr four; Maghrib three, and so on.
