The following question has been kindly answered by Moulana Sayyid M. 
Rizvi of the Islamic Education and Information Center of Toronto, Canada.
It is the first of two questions asked by an honorouble member. The other
question will be answered shortly, insha'Allah. 

Fi Amaanillah

 I recently was advised that on the last Juma of Ramazan,there is a prayer from 
Imam Ali(AS) that can be recited in lieu of all the previous qaza prayers. That 
is that if a person has so many qaza prayers that he doesn't know how many or if 
it is impossible to make them up then on the last Juma he can recite a four 
rakat prayer, each rakat consisting of Sura Hamd, 25 times sura Ikhlaas, 1 time 
Ayatul Kursi, and 15 times sura Kauther. Is this true? Can you give some 
validity to this.


       I myself was unaware of such a tradition until the recent Ramadhan
when someone in Dallas, TX, showed to me a pamphlet printed in Pakistan
which contained that hadith. First of all, express any opinion about the
validity or otherwise of this hadith until I have checked in our main
hadith sources. Secondly, even without looking at the sanad of that
so-called hadith, I have my doubts about it. Even the printed version
shown to me in Dallas did not say that it is in lieu of all the previous
qaza prayers -- it sounded more like it is the kaffara for not saying the
praying on time. 
        Whatever is the outcome of this hadith, the fact remains that one
has to perform the qaza prayers even after praying the namaz you have
mentioned in your question. 

Yours in Iman,

Sayyid M. Rizvi
