In addition to our 5 obligatory daily prayers, we are also legislated to do sunnah or voluntary prayers. They are also known as nafil prayers and al-subhah. There are many types of voluntary prayers: Some are legislated to be performed in congregation whereas others are to be prayed individually. These include the prayers of taraweeh, eid, eclipse, entering the masjid and so many more. Then there are some voluntary prayers that supplement the obligatory prayers like the sunnah and ratibah prayers. These are our focus in this article: as-Sunnan ar-Rawatib.
