Nafl Prayers During the Day and Night

    Other than the times mentioned above, one may offer as much nafl prayers as one desires. During the day, one should offer nafl prayers in units of two or four. It is makrh to offer more than four rakt nafl at a time (ie. with one pair of salaams) during the day. At night, it is permissible to make intention for performing up to six, or even eight, rakt at a time. To pray in batches greater than eight rakt at night is also makrh and should not be done. [BZ p.110; KS; also in Hidayah]

                There are several nafl prayers which may be offered at specific times during the day and night, in specific quantities. To be consistent in performing such prayers will result in great reward. We will discuss these various prayers in detail below.
