missed prayers

Please see below:

Q. Is it obligatory to make up missed prayers? Or can an individual give Kaffara (atonement) for their missed prayers?

A. There is NO quick fix solution. As a result, it is obligatory to make up ALL missed "obligatory prayers" of previous years from the moment an individual became a mukallaf (religiously accountable). In this sense, Kaffara cannot be given as a substitute for any missed obligatory prayers. This is the ruling according to all Shi'ite jurists, and genereally the Sunni madhabs.
It is, however, according to the Shi'ite jurists, permissible when one has died for the eldest son to make up any missed "obligatory prayers"...


Quran's perspective?
