Q578: shortening salah when making qaza

Share This Post

Question: Asalamualaikum. Please can you help me. I have heard that you can pray qaza umrai namaz in a shortened version. – you pray the first 2 rakah normal, but in the 3rd/4th rakah you don’t pray surah fatiha. In ruku and sajda, you only pray “subhana rabbiyal azeem” once and “subhana rabbiya ala” once. Then attahiyat, full, then in darud only up to allahumma sallai ala muhammadin wala alehi. In Witr, you pray as normal up to the third ruku and sajda, then the shortened version. Please help as I have many years of qaza e umri to pray. Please make dua that I can complete them.

Answer: Walaikumussalam w.w.
What you have heard is correct. In such circumstances, when you have a large number of prayers to make up from the past, you would be allowed to pray the bare minimum, in order to help you complete your missed prayers.
In your normal prayers, though, pray everything fully. (A/Hafiz1/12)
