    I have missed many salahs (at least 5 months of namaz) I have recorded all my qaza salahs in a journal I keep. Is it permissible for me to still pray my sunnah and witr. From my understanding a muslim brother cannot pray sunnah and witr until his qazas complete. In my case it is vary difficult for me to complete all my qazas in one day. So I have been missing many sunnah and witr salahs and this has led me to miss my farz salah as well. Is it permissible for me to pray my sunnah and witr with all these qaza if my intention is to complete all my qazas?

      In your specific case I would recommend you focus on your qadha fard salat and forego the sunnah and witr for the time being until your qadha salats are within manageable numbers, then go ahead and offer fard,witr,and sunnah. But if offering witr and sunnah are causing you to further increase in qadha then focus primarily on fard.

        Assalamualikum Warahamatullahi Wabrakatu,

        Dear Imam Ehsan Quayoum,

        Can you please provide authentic source where it says someone has to make up missed prayer especially for longer period of time in his case 5 months. As far as I know according to authentic sources you cannot make up missed prayers for a longer period of time rather you should pray nafi’l prayer during your salat to compensate for the missed salah. Please let me know your thoughts and I would appreciate if you can provide authentic source.

        Jaazakallahu Khairan

          There is NO Qadha for Fard Salah if you missed last 5 months prayers. Only thing you can do is Tawba and Istighfaar to Allah Subhanavatala.

    How do you respond to your parents who don’t want you to grow out your beard, but shave it with minimal facial hair?

    My question is regarding zakat. I purchased a car on loan which I will be paying off in five years. My wealth is greater than nisab. How should I calculate zakat in this case?
