Is Prayer Excused on a Person Who is Unconscious?


Answered by Ustadh Tabraze Azam
Question: Does someone who has been unconscious two months has to make up all the missed prayers during that time?
Answer: Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,
I pray that you are in the best of health and faith, insha’Allah.
No, he does not have to make up those prayers. [Shurunbulali, Maraqi al-Falah]
A person who is unconscious does not have to make up their prayers if they exceed six. One of the conditions for the obligation of the prayer is soundness of mind (`aql).

And Allah alone gives success.
