Making up Nafil Prayers When You Have Missed Them at Their Due Time

Aishah (radi Allahu anha) reported that When Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) missed the optional night Salat (Tahajjud) due to pain or any other reason, he would perform twelve Rak’ah during the day time.

[Sahih Muslim]


The Qada’ of Nawafil, this is offering prayer to make up for having failed to offer it at their due time, is not binding (this is only for Nawafil). It is Mustahab (desirable). The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) did it.

And Allah Knows Best!
