MAKING UP SUNNATUL RAWATIB (REGULAR SUNNAH PRAYER) IF SOMEONE MISS IT.

It is mustahabb to make up the regular Sunnah prayers if one misses them, according to the correct scholarly view. It is prescribed to make up the regular Sunnah prayers (al-sunan al-rawaatib) if they are missed because of an excuse such as sleeping, forgetting or being too busy to do them, which led to one not offering them at the proper time. So they may be made up even at times when prayer is not allowed.

Narrated Kuraib: I was sent to Aisha by Ibn Abbas, Al-Miswar bin Makhrama and ‘Abdur-Rahman bin Azhar . They told me to greet her on their behalf and to ask her about the offering of the two Rakat after the ‘ASR prayer and to say to her, “We were informed that you offer those two Rakat and we were told that the Prophet had forbidden offering them.” Ibn Abbas said, “I along with ‘Umar bin Al-Khattab used to beat the people whenever they offered them.” I went to Aisha and told her that message. ‘Aisha said, “Go and ask Um SALAMA about them.” So I returned and informed them about her statement. They then told me to go to Um SALAMA with the same question with which t sent me to ‘Aisha. Um SALAMA replied, “I heard the Prophet forbidding them. Later I saw him offering them immediately after he prayed the ‘ASR prayer. He then entered my house at a time when some of the Ansari women from the tribe of Bani Haram were sitting with me, so I sent my slave girl to him having said to her, ‘Stand beside him and tell him that Um SALAMA says to you, “O Allah’s Apostle! I have heard you forbidding the offering of these (two Rakat after the ‘ASR prayer) but I have seen you offering them.” If he waves his hand then wait for him.’ The slave girl did that. The Prophet beckoned her with his hand and she waited for him. When he had finished the prayer he said, “O daughter of Bani Umaiya! You have asked me about the two Rakat after the ‘ASR prayer. The people of the tribe of ‘Abdul-Qais came to me and made me busy and I could not offer the two Rakat after the Zuhr prayer. These (two Rakat that I have just prayed) are for those (missed) ones.

SAHIH BUKHARI (Volume #2, Book #22, Hadith #325)
SAHIH BUKHARI (Volume #5, Book #59, Hadith #656)

Kuraib, the freed slave of Ibn ‘Abbas, reported that ‘Abdullah b. ‘Abbas, ‘Abd al-Rahman b. Azhar, al-Miswar b. Makhrama sent him to ‘A’isha, the wife of the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him), telling him to give her their greetings, and ask her about the two rak’ahs after the afternoon prayer, (for)” we have heard that you observe them whereas it has been conveyed to us that the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) prohibited their observance.” Ibn ‘Abbas said: I along with ‘Umar b. al-Khattab dissuaded people to do so (to observe two rak’ahs of prayer). Kuraib said: I went to her (‘A’isha) and conveyed to her the message with which I was sent. She said: (Better) ask Umm SALAMA. So I went to them (those who had sent him to Hadrat ‘A’isha) and informed them about what she had said. They sent me back to Umm SALAMA with that with which I was sent to ‘A’isha. Umm SALAMA said: I beard the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) prohibiting them, and then afterwards I saw him observing them. And when he observed them (two rak’ahs) he had already observed the ‘ASR prayer. Then he (the Holy Prophet) came, while there were with me ladies of Banu Haram, a tribe of the Ansar and he (the Holy Prophet) observed them (the two rak’ahs). I sent a slave-girl to him asking her to stand by his side and say to him that Umm SALAMA says: Messenger of Allah, I heard you prohibiting these two rak’ahs, whereas I saw you observing them; and if he (the Holy Prophet) points with his hand (to wait), then do wait. The slave-girl did like that. He (the Holy Prophet) pointed out with his hand and she got aside and waited, and when he had finished (the prayer) he said: Daughter of Abu Umayya. you have asked about the two rak’ahs after the ‘ASR prayer. Some people of ‘Abu al-Qais came to me for embracing Islam and hindered me from observing the two rak’ahs which come after the noon prayer. So those are the two I have been praying.

SAHIH MUSLIM (Book #004, Hadith #1815)

Qais narrated:

“Allah’s Messenger (S) went out and the Iqamah was called for the Salat so I prayed As-Subh with him. Then the Prophet (S) turned and found me performing Salat so he said: ‘Easy O Qais! Are there two prayers together?’ I said: ‘O Messenger of Allah! I did not perform the two Rak’ah (before) Fajr.’ He said: ‘Then there is no harm.'” (Sahih)

SUNAN TIRMIDHI (Vol. 1, Book 2, Hadith 422)

Narrated Qays ibn Amr: The Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) saw a person praying after the congregational prayer at dawn was over. The Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) said: There are two rak’ahs of the dawn prayer (i.e. the prescribed rak’ahs). The man replied: I did not pray the two rak’ahs before the dawn prayer. Hence I offered them now. The Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) kept silent.

ABU DAWOOD (Book #4, Hadith #1262)

Aishah narrated:

“When the Prophet (P.B.U.H) would not perform the four Rak’ah before Az-Zuhr he would pray them after it.” (Sahih)

SUNAN TIRMIDHI (Vol. 1, Book 2, Hadith 426)

Al-Nawawi (may Allah have mercy on him) said:

The correct view is our opinion is that it is Mustahabb to make up the regular Sunnah prayers (al-sunan al-rawaatib). This is the view of Muhammad, al-Muzani, and Ahmad according to one report.

Al-MAJMOO, 4/43.

Al-Mardaawi al-Hanbali (may Allah have mercy on him) said:

The words “and whoever misses any of these Sunnah prayers, it is prescribed for him to make them up”– this is our madhhab (the madhhab of Imam Ahmad) and is the well known view according to our companions

Al-INSAAF , 2/187.

EXAMPLE:- (ASSUME)

If xx wants to make up the Regular Sunnah prayer that comes before Zuhr after offering the fard Zuhr prayer, should he pray the Sunnah prayer that comes before Zuhr first, and then the Sunnah prayer that comes after Zuhr, or vice versa?

Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen (may Allaah have mercy on him) said:

A man comes and the people are praying, and he is not able to offer the Sunnah prayer of Zuhr. When he has prayed Zuhr, he should pray two rak’ahs with the intention of offering the regular Sunnah prayer that comes after Zuhr, then make up the regular sunnah prayer that comes before.

Fath Dhi’l-Jalaal wa’l-Ikraam bi Sharhh Buloogh al-Maraam (2/225).
