Salaamun alaykum,

	The following reply is reply is reposted here following a query as
to  whether to offer the mother's qaza namaz is wajib or not.  In the
reply below, Moulana Rizvi states that it is better (awla) to offer the
qaza namaz of the mother.

Salam alaykum,
	I am the youngest daughter in my family.  My monther died 16 years
ago with many qadha prayers.  My only brother is not capable of either
doing the prayers himself or paying someone else due to a handicap.  Can I
do or pay someone to the the prayers on behalf of my mother ?  This is
something i would very much like to do if it is permissible to do so. 
Also what is the best way to go about finding someone to do so and how
much would one normally offer them ?. 

Thank you 

         As a rule, it is the eldest male child on whom the qaza of
father's prayers is wajib. This obligation on the eldest son does not
prevent other members of the family from hiring someone to perform the
qaza prayer on behalf of the deceased parent. It is also better (awla) to 
do the qaza prayers of the mother.
         The best way to go about finding someone to do the qaza pray is to
contact your local organization or `alim who is willing to arrange it in
Middle East, India or Pakistan, etc. They will also let you know the cost
involved in such arrangements.
