Sunah – Nafilah & additional prayers

Posted on January 29, 2008. Filed under: Salah | Tags: , |

From the chart below, every Salah is made up of Fard, the obligatory prayers, Sunnah and Nafilah or additional prayers.

The Holy Prophet (pbuh) said these extra prayers before or after the prescribed Fard prayers.

These are recommended. The sequence of these additional prayers is as follows:

 

Name of Salah Number of Sunnah before Fard Number of Fard Number of Sunnah after Fard Number of Nafilah

May the Almighty Allah bless you for giving this information. I have searched and searched and only been confused by what i have found but your site has given me the answers i need in a way i can understand. Thank you so much.

Salam,

Im a new revert to islam and getting a little confused with Sunnah and nafilah prayers.

1. how do we preform them. what to say and our actions during them.

2.im not to sure the order of the sunnah and nafilah ie/ Zuhr prayer
do we do one sunnah then one nafilah then one sunnah again then one nafilah

thank you.
