If a child becomes mature before the time of Namaz, even for a period of one Rak’at, he/she must offer obligatory Namaz and if he/she fails to do it, offering its Qadha is obligatory; and the same rule applies to a woman in Haidh or Nifas, if before the set time passes, her excuse is removed.

1397. Qadha of Namaz in places like Masjid-al Haraam which originally can be offered in shortened or full forms, if it is offered at some other place, as an obligatory precaution should be in Qasr, and if it is offered in the same places, can be offered either Qasr or full.

1402. If a perosn forgets the sequential order of the prayers, which he has not offered, it is not necessary to observe order and he/she may offer any of them first.

1403. If it is intended to offer Qadha of prayers for a dead person, and the heirs are aware of his/her unoffered prayers, it is necessary to observe the order. Therefore, it is not correct to hire several persons at one time to offer prayers for the dead and it is necessary to set a time for each of them, but if the order of lapsed prayers is not known, this condition is not necessary.

1404. A person who has several Qadha prayers and he/she does not know their number; for example, he does not know whether it was 4 or 5, if he/she offers the lesser number it is sufficient but as an obligatory precaution, if he/she knew the number before and has forgotten it later, he/she must offer the bigger number.

1407. Qadha prayers can be offered in congregation, irrespective of whether the prayers of the Imam are Ada or Qadha. And it is not necessary that both of them should be offering the same prayers; there is no harm if a person offers Qadha Fajr prayers with the Zuhr prayer or Asr prayers of the Imam.

1408. It is recommended that a discerning child, one who can distinguish between good and evil, is made to form the habit of prayers regularly, and to perform other acts of worship. In fact, it is Mustahab that he is encouraged to offer Qadha prayers.
