Hi all readers! Are you looking for an explanation about “is there any Sunnah prayer before Maghrib?”? If your answer is “Yes”, congratulations! Now you are reading the right article. Why? Because that is what I will explain in this article. As Muslims, we must understand that. That’s why I wrote this article. So, you should read it to the end!
Specifically, there are three important things about “is there any Sunnah prayer before Maghrib?” which I will explain in this article. Some of the important things I mean are as follows:
- What Is Sunnah Prayer?
- Is There Any Sunnah Prayer Before Maghrib?
- Types of Sunnah Prayers Before Maghrib.
What Is Sunnah Prayer?
The first important thing about “is there any Sunnah prayer before Maghrib?” what I will explain now is “what is Sunnah prayer?”. I want you to understand that first before you read more explanations in this article because that is the basic thing in this discussion that must be well understood.
Literally, “Sunnah prayer” is a sentence in Arabic. The writing is الصَّلَاةُ المَنْدُوْبَةُ or صَلَاةُ النَّفْلِ. Linguistically, the meaning of Sunnah prayer is the prayer that is recommended.
In general, if we read some Islamic legal literature, we will find an explanation that the meaning of sunnah prayer (الصَّلَاةُ المَنْدُوْبَةُ atau صَلَاةُ النَّفْلِ) is as follows:
كُلُّ أَنْوَاعِ الصَّلَوَاتِ غَيْرُ الْمَفْرُوْضَةِ
All types of prayer other than Fard prayer.
As Muslims, I think we all know that the fardhu prayer is the Fajr prayer, the Dhuhr prayer, the Asr prayer, the Maghrib prayer, and the Isha prayer.
So, what is meant by the Sunnah prayer is the Qabliyah prayer, the Ba’diyah prayer, the Witr prayer, the Tahajjud prayer, the Duha prayer, the Janazah prayer, the Istisqa prayer, the Khauf prayer, the Hajat prayer, the repentance prayer, and so on.
If Muslims are required to perform the Fard prayer, then they are encouraged to perform the Sunnah prayer. If Muslims who do not perform the Fard prayer will sin, then they will not sin if they do not perform the Sunnah prayer. But if they perform the Sunnah prayer, then it is better for them.
That is a brief explanation of “what is Sunnah prayer?”. As Muslims, we must understand that.
Is There Any Sunnah Prayer Before Maghrib?
The second important thing about “is there any Sunnah prayer before Maghrib?” what I will explain now is a specific explanation. So, I really hope you read this article very well.
Before I explain the answer to this question (is there any Sunnah prayer before Maghrib?), I will first quote a hadith that is specifically related to this discussion. The hadith I mean is as follows:
صَلُّوْا قَبْلَ الْمَغْرِبِ رَكْعَتَيْنِ ، ( قَالَ فِي الثَّالِثَةِ ) لِمَنْ شَاءَ
“Pray before Maghrib two rakats.” (He said the third time) “For those who want to do.”
All readers! If we understand the hadith above, we can conclude that the sunnah prayer before Maghrib referred to in the hadith is the Qabliyah Maghrib prayer. I say that because the Qabliyah Maghrib prayer is a Sunnah prayer that is performed before the Maghrib prayer.
One important thing about the Sunnah prayer before Maghrib that I want to explain here is that the Qabliyah prayer is not the only Sunnah prayer before Maghrib that we can perform. In certain situations, there are other types of Sunnah prayers before Maghrib that we can perform. I’ll explain that in the next few paragraphs. Soon. So, I really hope you read this article to the end!
That is a brief explanation of “is there any Sunnah prayer before Maghrib?”. As Muslims, we must understand that.
