Asalaamualaikum respected Mufti
During my days of ignorance, I missed years of Salaat. I have, however, started making Qadha for them and have also drawn up a schedule to assist me. Alhamdulillah, I have not since missed a single salaat and 99% of my salaat is now made with jamaat.
Does the hadith that says “hajj erases everything” apply to missed salaat during times of ignorance in ones life?
I am not in any way looking for a short cut to remove the qadha salaat. I feel really sad when I am unable to perform various nafil salaat knowing that it is better for me to perform the qadha.
