      Exclamation How many rakats are in each prayer?



      This is what i was taught when i was growing up:
      Fajr: 2 sunnah, 2 fard, 2 nafl
      Dhur: 4 sunnah, 4 fard, 2 sunnah, 2 nafl
      Asr: 4 fard, 4 nafl
      Magrib: 3 fard, 2 sunnah, 2 nafl
      Isha: 4 nafil, 4 fard, 2 sunnah, witr

      Can someone please check me on this and if possible give some ahadiths/quranic evidence? Jazakallah Khair

      Re: How many rakats are in each prayer?


      Thank you Brother for explaining why a woman should not recite aloud. Fortunately the majority of the time I pray I am alone in the house or just my parents are in ear shot. Though I don't recite that loud for them to hear. I am always fairly soft spoken in general, and I really don't like shouting. I did suspect a woman's voice may be too...enticing when singing/reciting, odd though that men can recite loudly when women are around who are not their sisters, wives or daughters...(or are they?) Some men do have fantastic voices when reciting the Qur'an.

      Re: How many rakats are in each prayer?


      Prayers (Salat) are primarily of two types; (i) obligatory- Fardh and (ii) voluntary(extra)-nafil.

      Obligatory or compulsory - Fardh prayers are those which are to be offered at any cost what so ever and in any condition except when one looses its conscious. These obligatory prayers constitute 17 rakaat in number as follows:

      Fajr: 2 rakaat
      Dhur: 4 rakaat
      Asr: 4 rakaat
      Maghrib: 3 rakaat
      Isha: 4 rakaat
      Total: 17 rakaat

      Voluntary (extra) - nafil prayers are those which are not obligatory but are offered by some one at his free will, to please Allah.
      These voluntary - nafil prayers are categorized into 3 types by Islamic scholars while emphasizing their importance;

      a) Sunnah prayers, further classified into; i) Mu'akadda and ii) Ghair Mu'akadda
      b) Nafil prayers, and
      c) Wajib prayers.

      Sunnah Mu’akadda prayers are those non-obligatory prayers for which the Prophet sws was very particular and he sws emphasized his followers to offer them. But one shouls remain mindful that to offer sunnah Mu’kadda prayers is highly rewarding but one is not accountable if he does not offer these prayers. These prayers are as follows:

      Fajr: 2 rakaat ( before 2 Fard)
      Dhur: 4 rakaat (before 4 Fard) + 2 rakaat (after Fard)
      Asr: No rakaat
      Maghrib: 2 rakaat (after 3 Fard)
      Isha: 2 rakaat (after 4 Fard)
      Total: 12 rakaat

      Sunnah Ghair Mu’akadda prayers are those non-obligatory prayers which the Prophet sws was neither particular nor emphasized to offer them. These prayers may be as follows:

      Fajr: None
      Dhur: None
      Asr: 4 rakaat (before 4 Fard)
      Maghrib: 2 rakaat (before 3 Fard)
      Isha: 4 rakaat (before 4 Fard)

      Nafil prayers are purely voluntary but Islamic scholars, for reasons best known to them, have prescribed them as follows:

      Fajr: None
      Dhur: 2 rakaat after 2 sunnah Mu’akadda
      Asr: None
      Maghrib: 2 rakaat after 2 sunnah Mu’akadda
      Isha: 2 rakaat after 2 sunnah Mu’akadda

      Wajib prayer is also obligatory, but to a lesser degree. Witr prayer, after Isha, is considered Wajib by certain schools of thought, while some consider it as Sunnah Mu’akadda. Though its omission is strongly reprehensible, it does not specifically incur punishment.

      There are no specific numbers of Witr rakaat. Odd numbers of rakaat (commonly 3) are offered as Witr prayers. The Prophet sws generally used to offer 10 or 13 rakaat as Witr. He sws also said to make Witr prayer as the last prayer of the day.

      Asalam o alakum
      first of all
      you can not say any nafl when Asr Fard are done before that you may say any number of nafi you want but as soon you are done with Asr Fard you can perform nafl till you perform your Magrib Fard.
      2nd matter saying it loud i read in Sahhi Bukhari Sharif even for man dont go to loud and dont go to soft it should be just high enough that you can hear your words yes just you can hear what you are speaking not any other person in the room.
      as far speaking high that is for the Immam in Jammat only.
      Jammat and be of 2 person and on wards.
      if women are to join in Jammat then they should stand at a gap of one person behind ie man standing in 1st row then women will not stand in 2nd but they will stand in 3rd row.
      but mahrim can stand togather in home but in mosque men and women have separate places.
