Question:

Can I perform asr prayer after not performing fajar and juhar prayer?

Answer

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

If you have missed less than six prayers then it is necessary that you maintain order between all the missed salah its self and between it and the subsequent salah. Therefore, you must pray the missed salah first.  If you perform the current salah before the missed one, then the salah will not be accepted.  However, this order will drop if one of the following three things are found.  1) There is not enough time in which he can perform both the missed salah and the current salah. 2) He forgets that he has missed a salah. 3) He misses more than five salah.

In all the above cases the order will no longer be necessary to be observed.  (Maraqi al falah,  pg.171-172,  Darul kultub al ilmiyah.)

Only Allah knows best.
