The regular supererogatory prayers

Q 1: Is it lawful to perform two Rak`ahs (units of Prayer) after the two supererogatory Rak`ahs of Fajr (Dawn) Prayer? What is the ruling if I perform these two Rak`ahs? Give us your Fatwa, may Allah reward you.

A: A Muslim may only perform the two supererogatory Rak`ahs when the time of Al-Fajr Prayer is due. This is the practice of the Prophet (peace be upon him) during his lifetime. Whoever offers more supererogatory prayers in addition to (Part No. 7; Page No. 247) the two regular ones with no sound reason, is going against the Sunnah, for the Prophet (peace be upon him) said, There is no prayer (to be offered) after dawn except the (missed) two Rak`ahs of the Fajr prayer. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
