Qadha Prayers

Q:

Salam o alikum I have so many kaza prayers when I used contraception..for 3 years .I have started praying now every day during free time . I’m not sure exactly which days of the months I missed and which days I had prayed during that period of time. .so I’m praying for the whole month’s prayers as kaza . Is this right ? Also what are the mustahabaat of obligatory prayer which I could leave and quickly complete loads of my kaza prayers? At which point salwaat during prayers is wajib?

A:

Assalamu alaykum

You must repay your salah by offering the number that You are most certain of missing. E.g. you didn’t offer all your salah for 3 years and you are uncertain of the exact number you’ve missed, but you can roughly say it must have been about 3 months. Then that’s how much you need to offer as Qadha prayers.

Please refer to the link below to learn about the obligatory acts in salah. The rest are Mustahab. https://www.sistani.org/english/book/48/2217/
