Making Up Missed Prayers: Immediately Or
According to the Hanbalis, if someone
misses a prayer for a valid excuse, does he have to make it up
immediately? Or does he have up to a certain time to make it up? If
he is permitted some respite, where is it up to? Is there a
difference here between someone who missed a prayer with a valid
excuse or with an invalid one?
- The official position in the madhhab is that such a person
needs to make up the prayer immediately. Making up the prayers is
given a priority over most other things, though not at the expense
of other obligations like earning a lawful income, praying current
prayers, sleeping, and the like.
- And Allah knows best.
