I just got an email today regarding the reward for those who put extra effort to pray an additional 12 rak’ahs of Sunnah Prayer. I’d like to share the email with you here. May Allah gives us the practice of this sunnah.
Todays Reminder: Praying Your Sunnah Prayers Sunnah prayers are those which are done above and beyond the obligatory ones.
I love the following Hadith because of the daily goal it sets for us:
It was narrated that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “Whoever prays twelve rakahs during the night and day, a house will be built for him in Paradise: four before Zuhr and two after, two rak’ahs after Maghrib, two rakahs after isha and two rakahs before Fajr prayer.” (al-Tirmidhi, no. 380; classed as authentic in Saheeh al-Jaami’, 6362)
With best wishes to see you succeed at the highest level! – Muhammad Alshareef
