 salamem  everyone.


With reference to our fruitful discussion on the importance of Qaza salat, prohibition of Qaza salat among certain circles of traditionalists may have arisen from a confusion concerning the meaning of that term.  In connection to salat, Qaza means what's due upon you.  But in Hadith the word Qaza means to shave a part of your head and leave the other part.  Sounds strange but it isn't unusual to find Hadith full of strange ideas.  And according to Hadith, shaving part of your head is not allowed.  So it's possible that some Hadith followers have mixed up Qaza prayers with the very different idea expressed in the Hadith literature and have thus started claiming that Qaza prayer is not allowed.   I quote a Hadith below with the word Qaza referring to shaving of head.

Nafi’ reports that he heard Sayyiduna Abdullah ibn Umar (Allah be pleased with him) say: “I heard the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him & give him peace) forbidding the practice of Qaz’a”. Ubaid Allah said: “I inquired, what is Qaz’a? So he said: “When the head of a child is shaved and hair is left here and there, and Ubaid Allah pointed towards his forelock and the sides of his head. (Sahih al-Bukhari, No. 5576).

Needless to say, there is NO such concept in the Noble Quran and thus rest assured, the Prophet (pbuh) never said any such senseless thing.

Walaikum Salam br. TS .... 

Good grief!   From where did Hadith get this interpretation of the word "Qaza?"  Shaving of a child's head as alluded in that narration is commonly known as "Aqiqah" (عقيقة), is it not?  Of course, aqiqah is also not in the Quran.  It's just an optional social tradition, a celebration on the birth of a child with dinner and that occasion is supposed to be the event of the child's first haircut in which the hair is usually shaven completely.  The entire Muslim world calls it Aqiqah, but hadith calls it Qaza, huh?   

You have a valid point here brother TS.  It could be a reason why some hadithists object to Qaza salat, an outcome of a needless confusion started by hadith.

Exactly sister Ruhi.  The term generally used for the occasion when an infant's head is shaven is Aqiqah; and yes it's just a social event.  I came across this hadith just a few days ago.  Whether or not the hadithists connect it with Qaza salat (which itself as an idea doesn't make sense), this hadith on its own is totally absurd.
