Do I Have to Repeat My Prayers in Which I Did Something That Is Disliked?
Answered by Ustadh Sufyan Qufi
In the book “Ascent to Felicity” (Maraqi al-Falah), the author mentions that: “it is mandatory (wajib) to repeat a prayer in which one intentionally did an act that is prohibitively disliked (makruh tahriman).” [Ibn Abidin, Radd al-Muhtar, 1/307].
Would I be sinful not to repeat a prayer in which a prohibitively disliked action has been committed?
In the name of Allah, Most Compassionate, Most Merciful,
I pray this finds you in the best of states.
Yes, it would be sinful not to repeat a prayer in which a prohibitively disliked action has been committed within this prayer’s time.
The fatwa position of most of the later scholars is that if one performed a prayer with something prohibitively disliked (makruh tahriman), it is
(1) necessary (wajib) to repeat within the time; and
(2) not necessary to repeat after the time—but, instead, it is recommended to repeat.

Do I Need to Makeup Prayers Within the Prayer Time if I Did Something Prohibitively Disliked?
And Allah knows best.
