In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

You state that it scares you to think how many years it would take to fulfil the missed salaah and whether Allah Ta’ala will forgive you. You should rather focus on the tawfeeq (ability) Allah Ta’ala has given you to understand Islam better now and to commence making qadhaa of your missed salaah. The better understanding of Islam and making qadhaa of the missed salaah is a tawfeeq from Allah Ta’ala. What if you did not have this tawfeeq?

Just as Allah Ta’ala gave you tawfeeq to commence the qadhaa salaah, Allah Ta’ala will also give you tawfeeq to be steadfast on fulfilling the qadhaa salaahs. The fact that Allah Ta’ala gave you tawfeeq is an indication that Allah Ta’ala wishes to forgive you.

                                                                                                            Our advice is, thank Allah Ta’ala for the tawfeeq and be positive and steadfast. An easy way of making qadhaa is to perform one qadhaa salaah with each present salaah. For example, during Zuhr of today, perform one Zuhr qadhaa etc.[1]

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best

باب قضاء الفوائت

ومن فاتته الصلاة قضاها إذا ذكرها وقدمها لزوما على صلاة الوقت إلا أن يخاف فوات صلاة الوقت فيقدم صلاة الوقت ثم يقضيها فإن فاتته صلوات رتبها في القضاء كما وجبت في الأصل إلا أن تزيد الفوائت على ست صلوات فيسقط الترتيب فيها

اللباب في شرح الكتاب (1/ 88)

وأما إذا صارت ستاً فأكثر فلا يلزمه الترتيب؛ لما فيه من الحرج؛ ولذا قال: (إلا أن تزيد الفوائت على ست صلوات) وكذا لو كانت ستاً، والمعتبر خروج وقت السادسة في الصحيح، إمداد (فيسقط الترتيب فيها) : أي بينها، كما سقط فيما بينها وبين الوقتية، ولا يعود الترتيب بعودها إلى القلة على المختار كما في التصحيح
