The Question: “Is it mandatory to make up the missed prayers in order…?

Ash-Shaykh Abdul Azeez ar-Raajihi, may Allah preserve him, was asked the following question,

هل يجب ترتيب الفوائت بحيث إذا فاتتني الصلاة وحضرت الجماعة الصلاة التي تليها أترك الجماعة وأقضي الفائتة؟

The Question: “Is it mandatory to make up the missed prayers in order, such as if I missed the prayer then the time for the Jama’ah of the next prayer comes in. So would I leave off the Jama’ah and make up the missed prayer?”

لا بد من الترتيب و يمكنك أن تصلي مع الجماعة الصلاة الفائتة ثم تصلي بعدها الحاضرة إلا إذا خشيت خروج وقت الحاضرة مثال( الحاضرة صلاة العصر خروج وقتها باصفرار الشمس ) أما فوات الجماعة لا بد من الترتيب

The Answer : “It is a must to perform them in order. While it is possible to pray with the Jama’ah (by making your intention to make up) for the missed prayer then after it you can pray the current salaah except in a state wherein you fear that the time for the current salaah will no longer be valid . For example if the current salaah is salaatu ‘Asr, the ending of its time is by the sun becoming yellow (during its setting). As for (if the purpose is merely to avoid) missing the congregation prayer then it is still necessary to perform them in order”
