Topic/Issue:1802 - Order of oferring prayers --
Opinion FromOpinionExplanation
Imam MalikObserving a sequential order is obligatory for five prayers or whatever is less, and that the person is to begin with a forgotten prayer even if the time of the current prayer is to be missed. Narration of Ibn Umar

They were of the opinion that the sequential order be obligatory for the delayed prayer with respect to time and not with respect to the the act, because of the words of the Prophet (God’s peace and blessings be upon him), "He should offer it when he remembers ". They said that the time for the forgotten prayer is the time when it is remembered, therefore, it is necessary that the prayer he is currently offering be invalid at that time.
Imam Abu HanifaObserving a sequential order is obligatory only when the period for the current prayer is long enough (for the qada and the adda prayers
Imam Shafit there is no obligation of maintaining an order, but if he does this and the time is long enough to accommodate the current prayer, it is commendable.Narration of Ibn Umar is weak. Use the narration from Ibn Abbas

They maintained that a sequential order in adda (timely performance) is binding because the timings are specific to the prayer, and the prayers are ordered in themselves, as time cannot be conceived except as sequential. Hence they did not extend this obligation to qada, for there is no specific time for qada
