Twelve Raka’ah of as-Sunan ar-Rawatib Prayers

sunnah prayer

Beside 5 obligatory prayers a day, there twelve raka’at of sunnah (recommended) prayers. They are called as rawatib prayers.

Whoever does these prayers, Allah will reward him a house in jannah.

The Prophet ﷺ said: 

مَنْ ثَابَرَ عَلَى ثِنْتَيْ عَشْرَةَ رَكْعَةً مِنْ السُّنَّةِ بَنَى اللَّهُ لَهُ بَيْتًا فِي الْجَنَّةِ أَرْبَعِ رَكَعَاتٍ قَبْلَ الظُّهْرِ وَرَكْعَتَيْنِ بَعْدَهَا وَرَكْعَتَيْنِ بَعْدَ الْمَغْرِبِ وَرَكْعَتَيْنِ بَعْدَ الْعِشَاءِ وَرَكْعَتَيْنِ قَبْلَ الْفَجْرِ

“Whoever perseveres in performing twelve cycles of prayer from the Sunnah, Allah will build a house for him in Paradise. They are four cycles before noon prayer and two after it, two cycles after sunset prayer, two cycles after evening prayer, and two cycles before dawn prayer” [Sunan at-Tirmidhi, classed as Saheeh by al-Albaani].
