I have missed many salats and fasts in my previous life. How can I make them up?
Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh
Thank you for your question.
May Allah reward and bless you for your commitment to the injunctions of the religion.
Missed prayers and fasts must be made up.
“Whoever forgets to pray should pray as soon as they remember, for there is no expiation for the prayer besides performing it.” (Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim)
“We were commanded to to make up our [missed] fasts.” (Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim)
And Allah knows best.
