Performing salaah and fasting as fidyah

Q: Can I offer my parents missed salaahs as they both have died (may Allah bless their souls and forgive them) or should I pay fidyah for their missed salaahs and fasts so that Allah almighty may forgive them for not being regular in their salaah and fasting. 

A: You cannot perform salaah. However, if you wish, then from your personal wealth you may give fidyah for each of their missed salaah and fast.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
