    Salat according to hanafi fiqh

    Brothers and sisters, I am always left confused when it comes to salat, and Im worried that the way in which I pray is incorrect or unacceptable.

    At the moment, my understanding is the following.
    Fajr 2 sunnat then 2 fard
    Zuhr 4 sunnat then 4 fard then 2 sunnat then 2 nafl
    Juma 4 sunnat before khutbah then 2 fard in jamaat then 4 sunnat then 2 sunnat then 2 nafl
    Asr 4 sunnat then 4 fard
    Maghrib 3 fard then 2 sunnat then 2 nafl
    Isha 4 sunnat then 4 fard then 2 sunnat then 2 nafl then 3 witr then 2 nafl

    Is the above correct as this is what I have been taught, and I am struggling to find confirmation anywhere. Also, if the above is correct, apart from the fard rakaats, are there any other that are obligatory?

    jazakallah

    Yes, that's correct. In addition to the fard, you need to pray witr and all the sunnat you mentioned, except the sunnah before Asr and Isha, as they are optional.
    The Sahaba (radiAllahu anhum) used to cling to the Sunnah just because it was Sunnah
    Today we abandon the Sunnah, just because it's Sunnah.

    Re: Salat according to hanafi fiqh

    Ok thanks for that. I read somewhere regarding the sunnat before fajr can be read after sunrise, is this correct? Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get up for fajr salaat, as I am finding it hard.

    Re: Salat according to hanafi fiqh

    Also, I read somewhere that you dont always have to read a surah after al-fatihah, when is this permissible?

    And is it ok to say bismillahir rahmanir rahim, before reciting al-fatihah, the surah which follows it, attahiyat, durood sharif and the dua which follows it, as I have got into a habit of saying it before everything, just wondering if this is permissible?

    Bismillah isnt requeired for reciting attahiyat,durrod and other dua. Only before reciting surah´s. And Allah knows the best.

    Why do Brailvi group within Hanifism always do Nafl prayers - I always thought Nafl are optional.

    Nafl means additional/optional, why do they pray them like they are Fardh or Sunnah Muakkadah?

    Re: Salat according to hanafi fiqh

    praying nafl prayers and sunnah are important because you are reviving the sunnah, which this generation (inc myself) feel we can leave. And also if there is defiency in our obligatory fardh prayers then our sunnah and nafl prayers will be used to 'fill' the defiency, if that makes sense. The more optional prayers we can do the better, inshallah.

    What do you mean by Like? the matter is we should do good things always as much we want.Prophet(sw) did targhib to us to pray as much we want or can.
    people like to pray, then he should also pray as much as he wants. Praying nafal 1000 rakah is way of some salaf regularly. And he will get reward for it.

    If i like to work and get money for that, shouldnt i always do part time job? or just stop doing work after 8 hour is done ?

    But by making optional extra prayers compulsory in a way, you are diverting people away from the simple and straight path and as Salafiyya would say "Bida'a"

    It is not compulsory therefore it is not a bid`ah. The actions of our pious predecessors are clear, praying the nafl prayer is a way to get closer to Allah Almighty and it helps close any gaps with your obligatory prayers, as it was previously mentioned.

    A Muslim should be striving to please his or her Lord, and praying nafl salat is a great way to start.
    The spiritual warrior is he who breaks an idol;
    and the idol of each person is his Ego.

    - Imam Abul Qasim al-Qushayri

    Then why are nafl or optional sunnah prayers specified for the prayers? If you were to ask a Brailvi how many rakahs to pray for eg. Isha he/she would say 17. Why is this the case? Why doesn't he/she say 9 plus 8 extra? It shows that the extra prayers have been made a compulsion.
