Whoever sleeps through or has forgotten to pray a certain prayer should pray it when he
wakes up or remembers the prayer.
▪ On the authority of Abu Qataadah , sleeping through the prayer time was mentioned
to the Prophet pbuh and he said, “There is no negligence in sleep, but negligence occurs
while one is awake. If one of you forgets a prayer or sleeps through its time, then he
should pray it when he remembers it.” (Recorded by An-Nasaa’i and At-Tirmidhi, who
classified it as authentic)
