Paying for missed salaahs of the deceased

Question ID: 33893

Asalaamu alaykum Mufti

I just would like to find out about paying for any missed Salaah, after one has passed away. As I recently lost my brother and one of the terms in his Will was to pay for any missed in his life. I would just like know how should one pay for the Salaah (Sadaqah, Lillah etc) and what is the amount due per missed Salaah.

1) You must assess how many Fardh Salaats you missed, including Witr which is Wajib and start making Qadha without delay.
2) Assess how many Fardh Salaat your brother missed including Witr. Then times that with the current Sadaqatul Fitr amount. e.g. if missed 1000 Salaat then times that by R20.00 (Sadaqatul Fitr of 2017) = R20.00k.
Give that out to the recipients of Zakaat.
Remember the rule is 6 Salaat per day. (5 Fardh plus Witr)
