Shaykh Faraz Rabbani clarifies whether strict order is necessary when one makes up a great number of missed prayers.

Question:

Assalam alaykum wa rahmat Allah wa barakatuh.

If one has years of missed prayers, do they need to be made up in order? Or can one first make up all of the missed Fajr salats, then all of the the Dhuhrs, and so on?

Answer:

Wa alaykum assalam wa rahmat Allah wa barakatuh.

In the Name of Allah, the Benevolent, the Merciful.

I pray this finds you in the best of health and spirits.

Order doesn’t have to be observed when making up past prayers, if more than six in total. You can make them up in any order. (Shurunbulali, Maraqi al Falah)

And Allah alone gives success.
