If a Sick Person misses a Number of Obligatory Prayers, how may He Make them Up?
Question:

There is a sick person who underwent a surgical operation, and after it, he missed a number of obligatory prayers, should he pray all of them together after he recovers, or should he pray them at their time? That is, should he pray the Fajr prayer that he missed along with the current one, and Zuhr with Zuhr etc.?
Answer:

He must pray them together, at one time, because when the Prophet (sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam) missed the Asr prayer during the battle of the Trench, he prayed it before Maghrib, and when a person misses some obligatory prayers, he must offer them together and not delay them.
