Exctracts of the method and benefits of performing the Nafil Namaaz of Tahiyatul Wudhu, Ishraak, Chaasht, Tahajjud, Tawbah, and Salatul Tasbih.


TAHIYATUL WUDHU

After completion of the wudhu of two Rakaats is full of blessings (sawaab). It is related in the Hadith that performance of the two Rakaats of Tahiyatul wudhu Namaaz makes paradise obligatory (wajib) for the performer (ref:Muslim Sharif) There are also many other benefits.

It should not be performed during the Improper (makruh) times. (When the sun rises, when it is at Zenith and when it sets.)


NAMAAZ E-ISHRAAK

After the Fajar Namaaz one should sit at the same place and recite Durud Sharif, Zikr, tasbeh., Quran or listen to relegious talks, etc. without participation in worldly affairs until the sun has fully risen, then perform two or four Rakaats. This is called Ishraak Namaaz.

Performance of this Namaaz brings blessings (sawab) equl to a Haj or Umrah. (Ref. Tirmizi Sharif ). Another Tradition says performance of this Namaaz wipes away all ones sins. (Ref: Abu Dawood). One can perform the Nammaz even after one has indulged in wordly affairs although the sawab will be much less.


NAMAAZ E-CHAASHT

When the sun has risen high and there is heat in its rays, the performance of 2,4, 6,8 or 12 rakaats is called Namaaz-e-Chaast. This is full of sawbs.

The Traditions says that the performance of 2 rakaats wipes away all ones sins. There are 360 joints in our body and to pay Sadakah for each is Wajib (obligatory) The 2 rakaaats is enough to pay all the Sadakah. Performance of 4 rakaats places the performer's name among the Abids and is the Sunnat of Saliheen and promise the performer protection until the evening. The performer of 6 rakaats is relieved of his day's worries. Performance of 8 rakaats places his name among the Parhezgaars and the performer of 12 rakaats ensures a Golden Mansion for himself in Paradise. (Ref : Tirmizi, Ibne Majah, Ahmad and Abu Yala)

NAMAAZ E-AWABEEN

After the Farz and Sunnat of Magrib, performance of the minimum of 6 to a maximum of 20 rakaats is called Namaaz-E-Awabeen.

One Tradition states that performing of 6 rakaats without indulging in worldly affairs will derive sawaab equilavent to 12 years Nafil prayers. (Ref: Tirmizi Sharif). The Tradition in Tibrani says the performer of 6 rakaats will have all his sins wiped away even though they may have been equal to the foam on the waves of the sea. Another Hadith in Tirmizi Sharif says that the performer of 20 rakaats will have a house for himself in Paradise.

TAHAJJUD NAMAAZ

To wake up in the middle of the night to read Tahajjud is very beneficial. The Almighty Allah is very appreciative of such a namaaz. This namaaz bestows or brings the most sawaab of all the nafils. One should perform anything from 4 rakaats to 12 rakaats .

The Tradition in Bayhaqi relates that the 4 rakaats of Tahajjud is equal to 4 rakaats on Shab-e-Kadr. The performance brings one nearer to Allah, Kaffar (payment) of ones previous sins. and is prohibitive for the future sins. (Ref: Tirmizi Sharif). Allah bestows is Rahmat on those who get up to read Namaz. (Refs: Abu Dawood, Nasai and Ibne Habban).

The Almighty sends a message in the last part of the night saying that if there is any appeal to Him it shall be answered and if there is one seeking His forgiveness he shall be forgiven. The doors of His Mercy are opened and this the time when ones prayers are accepted. If one has not the courage or strength to wake up in the night then it can be performed after Esha although the sawaab will be much less. One should take advantage when waking up for Sehri in Ramadaan and performing this Namaaz before partaking of Sehri.


TAWBAH NAMAAZ


After one has done any sinful act he should read 2 rakaats Nafil after which sincerely repent, feel sorry for his sins, seek His forgiveness and make a firm decision not to do it again. By His Grace the sin would be forgiven (Ref: Shami)

Amirul Momeneen Hazrat Aboobaker (R.A.) relates that the Holy Prophet ( Sallaallahu Alayi Wasallam) said that whenever one has done a sinful act he should make wudhu , perform 2 rakaats Nafil and thereafter sincerely repent and seek Almighty's forgivness. Allah pardons all sins. After relating this , the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) then read the following from the Quran:

"And those who have done something to be ashamed of or wronged their own souls. Earnestly bring Allah to mind and ask for forgiveness of their sins, and who can forgive sins except Allah "(Sura 3-135)


SALATUL TASBIH

For this Namaaz 4 rakaats are performed. The Tasbih hereunder should be read seventy-five times in each rakaat making a total of 300 Tasbihs in the 4 rakaats. The Tasbih is :

"Subhanallahe Walhamdo lillahe Walaillaha Illallahu Wallahu Akbar."

After starting the namaaz by saying Allah-o-Akbar recite the Sana, Alhamdo and a Sura followed by the Tasbih 15 times the go into Ruku in which after the usual recitation for Ruku read the Tasbih 10 times and go into Sijdah where after the usual recitation read the Tasbih 10 times then sit up and read Tasbih 10 times and go into Sijdah again and after the Sijdah recitation read the Tasbih 10 times then sit after the 2nd Sijdah and read Tasbih 10 times before getting up for the second rakaat. The total of the 4 rakaats would be 300 as prescribed.

The Traditions have highly recommended it. The Holy Prophet (Sallalllahu Alayhi Wasallam) told his uncle Hazrat Abbas (R.A.) that after performing the 4 rakaats of Salatul Tasbih one's sins- past or future small or big, hidden or open, intentional or unintentional- all of them are forgiven. Furthermore he aadvised that it be read every day, if that is not possible then on every Jumma or once a month or a year or at least once in a life time. It can be performed any time of the day or night except at the improper times.

This is from IslamToday.

Regarding the Tasâbih prayer, please read the following from our archives:

Answered by Sheikh Muhammad b. Sâlih al-`Uthaymîn:

I hold the view that al-Tasâbîh prayer is not from the Sunnah and that the hadîth referring to it is weak. I hold this view for the following reasons:

1) In cases of worship, any act is prohibited unless legal evidence is provided to show that it is legally valid.

2) The hadîth about this prayer is contradictory in many ways.

3) It was not recommended by any scholar. Ibn Taymiyah said: “Ahmad and his companions stated their dislike of it and no scholar recommended it.” He also said: “Abû Hanîfah and al-Shafi`î knew nothing about it.”

4) If that prayer is lawful it would have been conveyed to us clearly by the scholars and it would have been well known, because of its great benefits and its being very different than other prayers other forms of worship. We know of no other form of worship that offers the choice of performing it every day, once a week, once a month, once a year, or once in a lifetime.

And since it has so many advantages and is not similar to other prayers, and at the same time is not well known and not recommended, then we know it is has no basis to it, because when people know of something so unique possessing so many advantages, they pay attention to it and talk about it with others until it becomes widely circulated among the people. Since this is not the case with this prayer, we know the prayer is not lawful. This is why none of the great legal scholars recommended it.


There are a sufficient number of voluntary acts of worship that are established by sound evidence and provide sufficient blessings for those wishing to do more, that this prayer which has so much disagreement and ambiguity around it is unnecessary.

This fatwa is taken from Ibn `Uthaymîn, Fatâwa Volume 14, page 324

Wa Aleykum Salam Wa Rhametullah Bro Abdullah,

Just made me think, if Uthaymeen is saying one of the things mentioned in the thraed has no basis then what about the rest, sure puts doubt on it.

Salat al-Awwabin (Prayer of the Oft-Repentant)
Awwabin are the plural of Awwab and this refers to the one who is obedient, or one who turns to obedience, or 'the one who submits himself to the worship of Allah by asking for forgiveness'.

After performing the fard and sunnah of Maghrib, one may perform from 6 to a maximum of 20 rakat nafl, in sets of 2 units. This prayer has been called as Awwabin. (This name is sometimes also applied to the morning prayer.) It is said that the one who recites this prayer is one of the Awwabin.

“Whoever prays, after the Maghrib, 6 rakat without talking of anything indecent in between them, it would be equivalent to 12 years of worship for him.”
[at-Tirmidhi]

“The one who prays twenty rakat after Maghrib- Allâh will build for him a house in Paradise.”
[at-Tirmidhi]

Narrated Ibn Nasr (radiAllahu anhu), that whoever prays six units after Maghrib is written among the Awwabeen (oft-repentant) and he recited the verse of the Qur'an "innahu kaana li l-awwabeena ghafuran".

The awwabin prayer has great benefits and blessing. I have seen many well known scholars in pakistan who do not miss this nafil prayers, so those who want to start with this nafil prayers, its better to start from 6 rakaah first. I have heard from a scholar that 2 rakaah sunnah after fards of maghrib can be counted with awabeen if you do niyyah of it, then you just have to make 4 more rakaah (in sets of 2 units) to complete the awwabin prayers. but imp. is to be consistent with this prayers to get its real blessing, insha'Allah.

may Allah make it easy and accept it.

salat ishraq is easier for me. and it is easier for any hanafi madhab dominant places, because it is in hanafi madhab to Perform the fajar salaah when the sky brightens since this is a means of earning greater reward. (Hadith)
so in my local masjid one hardly wait for 20 mins after fajir jamaah and ishraaq time enters, thus one accepted hajj umrah rewards are collected soon, alhamdulilah.
