I ask because i find that this is something which troubles my heart. If someone has over 4 and a half years of qaza prayers to make up (which is over 10,000 prayers!!!) and these are *fardh* to make up, then how come in the hanafi madhab one is still told to continue doing the superrogatroy nafl prayers, even though it is known that doing these nawafil prayers will considerably delay the completion of the qaza prayers. Surely, the fardh takes precedence over the sunnah muakkadah? I know that in the other school this is the case where one makes up all their fardh qaza prayers before continuing with their sunnahs and i just wanted to know if there were any hanafi scholars at all who have said that this is the preferred opinion, or who have said that one would not be sinful for missing sunnah muakkadah in this case as there is a need for it?
