Can one leave fard prayers intentionally and postpone them to perform later as qada (compensation prayer) because of his/her working hours? Is performing qada every day a sin? Do salahs (prayers) become invalid?
The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

Performing qada is necessary even if a person misses his prayers without any excuse. It is not permissible to postpone them and to perform later.

Praying is fard (obligatory) for every Muslim who is sane and has reached the age of puberty. If an employer does not allow performing prayers, one should quit the job if  he/she does not have to work there. If the person has to work there, he/she should try to  perform salahson time. It is not appropriate to miss fard salahs even if one does it for his work.
