    Re: How many rakats are in each prayer? (OP)


    How many Rak'aat are there in each prayer?

    Prayer name Sunnah
    (before praying Fardh)
    Fardh Sunnah/Wajib
    (after Fardh)
    Fajr 2 (Sunnah mu'akkadah) 2
    Dhuhr 4 (Sunnah mu'akkadah) 4 2 (Sunnah mu'akkadah) + 2
    'Asr 4 4
    Maghrib 0 3 2 (Sunnah mu'akkadah)
    'Isha 4 4 2 (Sunnah mu'akkadah) + 3 (Wajib, Witr)


    What is fard, waajib, sunnah and nafl and what is the difference between them?

    Fard
    means compulsory beyond any argument. Anyone who denies a fard is a kaafir. And one who leaves a fard without excuse is a faasiq and is sinful.

    Waajib comes second to fard. One who denies waajib is not a kaafir but if he leaves it without excuse, he is faasiq and is sinful.

    Sunnah is an act which the Prophet did and his Companions followed and commanded. Sunnah mu'akkadah is a highly emphasized Sunnah and should not be missed habitually without a valid excuse.

    Nafl is an act commanded by Sharee’ah. It brings reward if done but no punishment if not done. It is also called mustahab, mandoob or tatawwu’.

    Re: How many rakats are in each prayer?

    Question: What is the excellence of optional Prayers?

    Answer:

    Praise be to Allaah.
    1. The mother of the faithfull Umm Habibah Ramilah bint Abu Sufyan Radhiallahu ‘anhu narrated that she heard the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم saying: “A house will be built in paradise for every Muslim who offers twelve Rak’ah of optional salah other than the obligatory salah in day and night, to seek pleasure of Allah.” Narrated by Muslim.

    Note : these extra 12 rakaats of optional prayers, according to Imam Nasaai and Tirmithi are : 2 rakaats before the obligatory prayer of Early morning (fajr), and 4 rakaats before (Duhr) and 2 rakaats after it ,and 2 rakaats after the obligatory of early evening prayer (magrib) and 2 rakaats after the obligatory prayer of night (isha) prayer.

    2. Abu Huraira Radhiallahu ‘anhu said : “My Khalil (friend) (the Prophet Shalallahu ‘alaihi wa Salam) advised me to observe three things and I shall not leave them till I die: 1. “To observe Saum (fasting) three days every (lunar) month; 2.” To offer the Duha prayer; 3. To offer Witr prayer before sleeping.” Narrated by Bukhari and Muslim.

    3. Aisha radhiyallahu ‘anha narrated that the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said : “The two rakaats before dawn (fajr) prayer are better than the world and all that it contains.” Narrated by Muslim.

    4. Aisha radhiyallahu ‘anha narrated that the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم was never more regular and strict in offering any Nawafil than the two rakaats (sunnah before) dawn (fajr) prayer. Narrated by Al-Bukhari and Muslim.

    5. Umm Habiba radhiyallahu ‘anha narrated that the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said : “Whoever, observes the practice of offering four rak’ahs before Duhr prayer and four rak’ahs after it. Allah will shield him against the fire of hell.” Narrated bay Abu Daud and At-Tirmithi.

    6. One should make Witr as the last salah (prayer) (at night).

    Abdullah bin Umar Radhiallahu ‘anhu narrated thet the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said : “Make Witr as your last salah (prayer) at night.” Narrated by Al-Bukhari and Muslim.

    7. If anyone enters a mosque, he should offer two raka’ah before sitting.

    Abu Qatada Radhiallahu ‘anhu narrated that the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said : “If any one of you enters a mosque, he should pray two raka’ats before sitting.” Narrated by Al-Bukhari and Muslim.

    8. Abu Huraira Radhiallahu ‘anhu narrated that Allah’s Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم said to Bilal Radhiallahu ‘anhu “Tell me about the most hopeful act (i.e one which you deem the most rewarding with Allah) you have done since your acceptance of Islam because I heard the sound of the steps of your shoes in front of me in paradise.” Bilal said : “I do not consider any act more hopeful than that whenever I make ablution (wudoo) at any time of night or day, I offer salah (prayer) for as long as was destined for me to offer.” Narrated by Al-Bukhari and Muslim.
