Sunnah salat

Sun’nah sal’ah are optional and were additional voluntary prayers performed by Muhammad — they are of two types — the Sun’nah Mukkaddah, those practiced on a regular basis, which if abandoned cause the abandoner to be regarded as sinful by the Hanafi School and the Sun’nah Ghair Mukkaddah, those practiced on a semi-regular practice by Prophet Muhammad about which all are that their abandonment doesn’t render one sinful.

Certain sunnah prayers have prescribed waqts associated with them. Those ordained for before each of the fard prayers must be performed between the first call to prayer (adhan) and the second call (iqama) which signifies the start of the fard prayer. Those sunnah ordained for after the fard prayers can be performed any time between the end of the fard prayers and the end of the current prayer’swaqt. Any amount of extra raka’ah may be offered, but most madha’ib prescribe a certain number of raka’ah for each sunnah salah.
