I learned how to pray when i was a child. But I had forgotten over time. I can't even remember how it happened. I feared telling my parents, because I did not want to get in trouble (I was still a child) and to much time passed by. I could not ask people around me, as they would get me in trouble, and I mean, I would have been in such a huge amount of trouble, and I wont list the details. It's just bad. So I tried and tried to search online, but i was still to young to know words and terms to search and when i did, it was in English roman letters, i could not understand the pronunciation. And if it were in Arabic, it would be people making false prayers for Shia's. (By the way, I am shia). Eventually, i made friends with good people who did not judge me or spread rumors about me. And helped me through with praying again. Alhamdullah, i have worked hard to be a good Muslim during the years I did not pray. But I began to feel like a complete Muslim when I started to pray. Here is another problem, the way my parents teach Salah, its forceful and not good. In fact, I don't think any of my siblings pray and don't care. During the time i did learn, it was horrible. I don't blame myself for how things came to be. And my Arabic is absolutely terrible, i did not know how to read or write and lacked speaking skills, so i could not even search in Arabic. Or in the end, i was just terrible at it. But I did put effort, and it did put me through a depression throughout the years, id cry in secret, because I did not know how to pray. Again, I worked hard to be a good Muslim, while telling Allah to forgive me and promising ill start eventually and never miss another salah. What I am curious about is, do I need to make up those prayers I had missed? I don't even remember when it happened, how it happened. I don't mind making up all the salahs, because they were salahs i wanted to perform to begin with, i never tried to miss it on purpose, and now that I pray, I don't miss a single one. Still, if I do not need to make any up, I would like to know. I follow Sayed Sistani if it helps. I thank anyone in advance for responding and helping
