Question : #759 Category: Salaat / Prayers
Subject: missed prayers
Question: Salam
If a person missed prayers during his days of ignorance, must he repay all these prayers FIRST before doing other prayers such as the Night prayers? Will his Night prayers carry any merit if he performed them even though he has not finished repaying his Obligatory prayers? I would appreciate it if you can quote some hadiths regarding this matter. Thank you
Answer: Salaams,

When a person accepts Islam, the new convert is not obliged to make up for the prayer he has missed as a non-Muslim.

What if the person is a muslim but neglected his obligatory duties then, but now he has decided to turn a new leaf?
