Umre qada missed prayers.
Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Assalam O Alykom,
Dear Brother Can you please varify the authentication of follwoing email .
Hazrat Amir-ul-mo'mineen (AS) said that any person who has accumulated a lot of Qazaa Namaz (missed a lot of salaat) and does not have the strength to offer them should offer Namaaz-e qazaa-e-umr.
This namaaz is the kaffara to cover 700 years of Qazaa Namaaz. One person asked Wali-Ullah "but the people of the ummat of Nabi live only 70-100 years at the most?" Hazrat Ali (AS) replied that the Namaaz-e-Kaffara covers your whole life's qazaa namaaz, your parents', your grand parents', your great grand parent's and others going back up to 700 years qazaa namaaz.
When to pray On the last Friday of the month of Ramadhan before sunset.
How to pray It's a 4 rakaat namaaz with one salaam. In every rakaat recite Sura-e-fateha
(Alhamd) once; followed by Sura-e-Ikhlaas (Qulhuwallahu ahad) 25 times; followed by Ayatul-Kursi once and followed by Sura-e-Kauthar 15 times. The Holy Qur'an says: "If someone trusts Allah, He will suffice Him. He will surely bring about what He decrees. Allah has set a measure for everything".
(Surah al-Talaq, 65:3)

Umre qada missed prayers
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

To the best of our knowledge there is absolutely nothing in the established and authentic Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah (saws) called the prayer of Umre-Qada.. and when the Messenger of Allah (saws) has not given or assigned a particular type or name for a prayer/s, it does not behove and befit one who sincerely believes in Allah and the Last Day to give or assign a name or type to it from himself!
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 1.109 Narrated by Salama
I heard the Prophet (saws) saying, "Whoever (intentionally) ascribes to me what I have not said then (surely) let him occupy his seat in Hell-fire."
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 8.217 Narrated by Abu Huraira
The Prophet (saws) said, "Whoever intentionally ascribes something to me falsely, he will surely take his place in the (Hell) Fire.
Allah and His Messenger (saws) alone have the right to prescribe what rites of worship are to be followed and observed by the believers..and because the Sunnah and practice of the Messenger of Allah (saws) is appropriately documented, some unscrupulous people who neither fear Allah nor the Last Day innovate from themselves without any right or authority rites and rituals in this pure and perfect deen of Islam .and to give their falsehood a sense of authenticity, these unscrupulous people ascribe their self-invented innovations to some amongst the noble companions of the Messenger of Allah (saws)!
Allah is our witness brother, it is not even remotely conceivable that a companion of the stature and rank of Hadrat Ali ibn Abi Taalib (r.a.) would ever do or say something in the religion brought by his leader, teacher, brother and Prophet from himself!!!
We absolutely assure you that the name and concept of this so-called Umre-Qada prayer, which supposedly covers your whole life's qazaa namaaz, your parents', your grand parents', your great grand parent's and others going back up to 700 years qazaa namaaz is nothing short of a blatant lie and a falsehood which some unscrupulous people who neither fear Allah and the Last Day have attributed to the Noble Companion of the Messenger of Allah, Hadrat Ali ibn Abi Taalib (r.a.)! Without an iota of a doubt, to believe, accept, and follow such an innovation would be a manifest bida in the Sight of the Lord Most High, Most Supreme.
Sahih Muslim Hadith 1885 Narrated by Jabir ibn Abdullah
That the Prophet of Allah (saws) said in a sermon: The best speech is that which is embodied in the Book of Allah, the Al Quran; and the best guidance is the guidance given by me, Mohamed (saws). The most evil affairs are the innovations (bida), and every innovation (bida) is an error.
Sunan of Abu-Dawood Hadith 4515 Narrated by Ali ibn AbuTalib
That the Prophet of Allah (saws) said: If anyone introduces an innovation (bida in religion), he will be responsible for it. If anyone introduces an innovation (bida) or gives shelter to a man who introduces an innovation (bida), he is cursed by Allah, by His Angels, and by all the people!
If one trusts, obeys, and follows the guidance and commands of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one can be assured of never ever being misled; but if one believes, obeys and follows any other guidance, other than that of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one can be assured of being led astray.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
