Q: I MISSED MY ZUHR SALAAH WHILST I WAS ON A JOURNEY. SHOULD I MAKE QADHA AT HOME OF FOUR RAKAATS OR TWO RAKAATS?
A: If you missed Salaah whilst you were a Musaafir, i.e. it became Qadha, then you only have to make Qadha of the amount a Musaafir would perform. For example, if you missed Zuhr whilst being a Musaafir, then you only need to make Qadha of two Rakaats at home because you missed Zuhr Salaah whilst being a Musaafir. Also note that it is a major sin to miss Salaah even when one is on a journey. We require Allah’s assistance all along the journey. Hence, we should not forget Allah and always be in the remembrance of Allah when travelling. On an incline recite Allahu Akbar and on a decline recite Subhaanallah. Keep the tongue engaged in the Kalimah and in Durood of Nabi Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam. And abstain from sin whilst travelling such as gheebat, listening to music, watching/looking at Haraam, etc.
