Aslamu alykum

You have to complete all missed Prayers, it is the first thing Allah will ask you about,

wise of this, praying fulfill your soul ashtiakek from Allah every pray,

if something happen that delay your pray that means that you still have to fulfill ashtiakek from

Allah.

no you cant do this we were given specific times by allah and his messenger and we should follow it the prophet said that innovations are haram innovation is when you do somthing in a new way thinking allah will accept it he told his sahaba once(this is a somwhat translation but still the same meaning) about a man who said he wouldnt get married because he felt allah will like this better but the messenger replied to him and said i am the messenger and i got married do not do anything that allah and I have not instructed for you to do

It is allowed to do 4 times prayers a day if you are really exhausted and cant take it any more.. But then the next day it would be very good thing to do 6 times .. you get me :)?

Salam. This is a thought from years of reading and research. Hope Allah guides us towards the better ways, Insya'Allah.

Prayers are must, an obligation (wajib), just like fasting, no compromising. missed any, you must Qada (make up, do it again) on all the missed prayers, starting with a full repent (asking for Allah's forgiveness) everytime we pray, and promised to Allah that we will never miss any prayers again.

In Islam we were told to start praying since we were 7, and entered puberty, its already an obligation. if we felt like we've been neglecting prayers since the age of 12, and we are now say 30, so the Qada needs to be done to make up the total of 18 years according to our ability.

We may do the Qada 2 times after each pray, that already cuts up half of the years. The more we do, the years will be lesser, but do not risk the body to do a lot until we became sick and neglecting our work and our family.

Start doing good deeds towards other people, ask for forgiveness from those we have caused hurt, forgive and forget those who have hurt us, give Sadaqah, read Quran, get involve with the society, as this is also part of repent and cleansing our soul, and at the same time Allah will shower those deeds with lots of Pahala (good returns). Insya'Allah, may the Pahala we did helps us to wash the sins we have done towards Allah.

The best and most prefect are only Allah, the worst and most sinful are completely human. Do give your comments, thoughts or correct the answer given, as it is not a perfect one. Thank you.

Wassalam.
