  • What's the obsession with the term 'Supererogatory'?

    Literally everything on Nawafil prayers is referred to as this term.

    Why don't they just say Optional, Extra, or Voluntary?

    Why this massive word that can hardly be pronounced?

      I think one guy translated certain terms into English, and everyone just latched on to them. Very annoying.

        Because the thing is, it really is. The sunnah is recommended and other than that is more than needed.

          Apparently the word has a particular meaning in theology and ethics that makes it more apt to use. But yeh think that meaning is lost on most of us non theologians.

          In ethics, an act is supererogatory if it is good but not morally required to be done. It refers to an act that is more than is necessary, when another course of action—involving less—would still be an acceptable action

          In the theology of the Roman Catholic Church, "works of supererogation" (also called "acts of supererogation") are those performed beyond what God requires.[1]
