the daily prayers;
2. the prayer of signs (ṣalāt al-āyāt);
3. the funeral prayer (ṣalāt al-mayyit);
4. the prayer for the obligatory circumambulation (ṭawāf) of the Kaʿbah;
5. the lapsed (qaḍāʾ) prayers of one’s father that, based on obligatory precaution (al-iḥtiyāṭ al-wājib), are obligatory on the eldest son to perform;
6. prayers that become obligatory on account of hire (ijārah), vow (nadhr), oath (qasam), or covenant (ʿahd).
