    When people say “pray 2 rakats”, what do they mean?

    Report bad ads?

    السَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكُمْ وَرَحْمَةُ اللهِ وَبَرَكَاتُهُ

    Some people tell me to pray 2 rakats (not fard prayer). What prayer do they mean? Is it Sunnah, Nafl...

    Could please someone clarify this for me?

    جزاك اللهُ خيرًا

    Also, when someone tells me to pray for them, do they mean to actually pray, or just to make Dua for them? If it’s to pray, what kind of prayer is that going to have to be? (Nafl, Sunnah...)

    What is the niyyah for that in Arabic? I know that Niyyah can be made in any language, but I just want to know how to say it in Arabic as I'm used to it.

    I know, but, what would most people say? For example, the Niyyah for Fajr would be “Nawayatu Aan Usallia Lillahi Taalaa Rakatai Salatil Fajree Faaradullahi Taala Mutaouuazzihan Ila Zihatil Ka’batish Sharifati, Allahuu Akbar”

    wa'alaikum as'salaam,

    why are they telling you that? need more context to answer properly. Generally it means 2 rakah nawfil.

    Also, when someone tells me to pray for them, do they mean to actually pray, or just to make Dua for them? If it’s to pray, what kind of prayer is that going to have to be? (Nafl, Sunnah...)
    usually means remember them in your duas, make dua for them.

    and as for niyyah. There are no specific words you need to saw for each prayer. You just need to make the intention in heart of what you are about to prayer.
