    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 24/23/N=1433) If you do not know definitely the exact number of missed salah after you attained puberty then you should follow the best estimation i.e. remember how many salah have you missed since you attained puberty and which salah were they? Write down in your diary or somewhere else as much number and salah you remember with surety and offer them one by one. Also, keep on omitting the salah which you offer in the diary. But if you do not remember any definite number then keep on offering salah until you are sure that you have offered all the missed salah. And if you do not remember the definite salah then you should make intention like this that you are offering the first Fajr salah out of all your missed Fajr salah or intend that you are offering the last Fajr. And do the same with other salah. قال في حاشية الطحطاوى على المراقي (كتاب الصلاة باب قضاء الفوائت ص 447) : من لم يدر كمية الفوائت يعمل بأكبر رأيه فأن لم يكن له رأي يقضي حتى يتيقن أنه لم يبق عليه شئى ا هـ و قال فى الدر (مع الرد كتاب الصلاة باب قضاء الفوائت 2 : 538) : فروع : .... كثرت الفوائت نوى أول ظهر عليه أو آخره اهـ
