Forgetting to offer the `Isha' Prayer

Q: A man forgot to offer `Isha' (Night) Prayer and did not remember it until the forenoon. He became confused, so he offered Jumu`ah (Friday) Prayer then offered the Salah (Prayer) he missed. What is the ruling in this regard? Is the Salah he performed accepted? Is it obligatory on him to offer the Fajr (Dawn) Prayer or the Jumu`ah (Friday) Prayer again or not?

A: The mentioned man has to offer the Salah that he forgot the moment he remembers it. It is not permissible for him to delay it until another time. The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: Whoever misses a prayer due to sleeping or forgetfulness, he should offer it when he remembers it, there is no expiation for it except this. However, the Salah he offered is correct, and we hope that Allah will forgive him delaying Salah due to his ignorance of the Shar`y ruling in this regard.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
