Prayer of one who becomes unconscious and one who is sick and stops praying

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum 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:
My father was hit by a car and his leg was injured, and he was in the hospital. He stayed there for seventeen days and did not pray. When he came round, he asked about that and wants to make up the prayers. Please advise us.

Praise be to Allaah.

If he was conscious during that time then he has to make up the missed prayers, standing, sitting, lying on his side, according to what he is able to do. He should do them in the right order, with the appropriate intention. So he should pray the prayers of the first day in order, starting with the first obligatory prayer that he missed, then the next one and so on, then the prayers of the second day and the third day, until he finishes. But if he was unconscious, in that case he does not have to make them up.

 And Allaah is the Source of strength. May Allaah send blessings and peace upon our Prophet Muhammad and his family and companions.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
