Compensation for Namaz (Fidya)
- Rule: If a person's Namaz has become Qaza and he dies then if he has left an order in his will to pay Fidya for his Qaza Namaz and he has left some money or goods, then Fidya should be paid from one third of the money or goods left by him and one half Sa'a (approx. 4lb 8oz) of wheat or one Sa'a ( approx. 9lb) of Sadqa is to be given to the poor for every Farz or Wajib missed. If the dying person has not left any goods then the next of kin can give to the poor from his own goods. The way to do this is the next of kin to give half a Sa'a to a pauper and he would become the owner, and the pauper would now as the owner give the goods back to the next of kin as a gift and now the next of kin would become the owner and to continue this process until all the Namaz have been counted for. If the person who has died has left some goods but is not enough then the same process should be applied. If the person who has died has not left an order in his will to give Fidya and the next of kin wishes to do so then they can.
- Rule: For whose Namaz there is fault or improper then they should repeat the whole lot as this is a good thing and if there is no fault then they shouldn't but if they would like to do so then they pray them after Fajr or Asr and should pray all the Rakats in full (with a Surat attached) and for Witr after Kunoot they should perform Qaidah and then join another Rakat to make it a total of four [Alamgiri].
Qaza-e-Umri does not exist
- Rule: Many people on the night of Shabb-e-Qadr or at the end of Ramadan pray two Rakats Namaz and believe that all their Qaza for a lifetime has been fulfilled, this is totally wrong and incorrect and is not possible.
Hadrat Anas Radi ALLAH Taala Anhu reported that the Messenger of Allah Peace And Blessings Be Upon Him has said, “Everything has a heart, and the heart of the Qur’an is Yasin. Allah records anyone who recites Yasin as having recited the Qur’an ten times.”
