Dear Brother / Sister,
There is no need to determine time for prayers which were missed. As this is difficult, it is more appropriate to do the easier one. The following intention is made when a qada prayer is performed:
"I intend to perform the first zuhr (noon) prayer that I could not perform on time..." or "I intend to perform the last zuhr (noon) prayer that I could not perform on time for the sake of Allah..." By this way, the missed prayers are started to be performed either from the first missed one or the last missed one; in both cases, the missed prayers are reduced by performing them in an order.
In order for it to be easier, it is also enough to intend as follows; "I'm performing the qada of a zuhr (noon) or asr (afternoon) prayer which is fard on me."
Questions on Islam
- Is determining the time for prayers when uttering intention (niyyah) essential while praying with jamaah (in congregation) or singly?
- When the time for zuhr (noon) comes, is only the missed fard qada of fajr (morning prayer) performed or is the sunnah of it performed as well?
- If a person cannot wake up for the morning prayer (fajr), if he, say, gets up at 9 o’clock, how can he perform the morning prayer?
- How is intention made for qada (missed) prayers? If a person does not know how many prayers he has missed, what should he do?
- When should I perform the Fajr (morning prayer), If I cannot perform it on time?
- How is intention made for sunnah prayers?
- When and how are the missed (qada) prayers performed? Are the sunnah prayers performed as well?
- What is the decree about missed (qada) prayers? When and how are they performed? How should one say niyyah (intention) for them?
- How many rak’ahs does Friday prayer consist of? Is it necessary to perform the Prayer of Zuhr al-Akhir after the last Sunnah of the Friday prayer?
