Q 3: is it permissible for the pilgrim who performs Zhuhr (Noon) and `Asr (Afternoon) Prayers with the Imam (Part No. 11; Page No. 212) in `Arafah to offer Nafilah (supererogatory) prayers until the time of Maghrib (Sunset) Prayer is due?

A: The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) did not offer any Nafilah (supererogatory) prayer on the day of `Arafah after combining Zhuhr and `Asr prayers at the time of Zhuhr in `Arafah If that was prescribed, the Prophet (peace be upon him) would have been the keenest on performing such Nafilah, and all goodness is to be found in following the Prophet (peace be upon him) and his Sunnah.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
