Answer

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Muhammad,  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

Scholars held different opinions regarding the ruling on making up for those missed prayers. The majority of scholars held that it is obligatory to make up for them, and this is more prudent and safer in terms of clearing one’s liability from the obligation in this regard. If you choose to make up for them, then you have to make up for as many missed prayers as you can during the day or night, according to your ability, in a way that does not physically harm you or negatively affect a livelihood that you need. According to the view of the Shaafi
