Chapter 201

Sunnah of the Maghrib Prayer


[In the previous chapter, the practice of the Prophet Sallalahu aleihi wa has been reported by `Umar and `Aishah (Radhi Allahu Anhuma) that he Sallalahu aleihi wa used to perform two Rak`ah Sunnah after the obligatory Maghrib prayer].




Hadith 1122


Abdullah bin Mughaffal radiyallahu anhu reported: The Prophet Sallalahu aleihi wa said,

"Perform two Rak`ah before Maghrib prayer.''

He Sallalahu aleihi wa repeated it twice; when repeating it for the third time he added:

"He who may so wish.'' [Al-Bukhari].


Commentary: This Salat means that the two Rak`ah are performed after the Adhan of Maghrib prayer but before the Fardh Salat. This is elucidated by other Ahadith. Although this has the position of Sunnah Ghair Mu'akkadah, its importance is evident from the fact that the Prophet Sallalahu aleihi wa stressed it three times. Usually an order (Amr) signifies that the act is "essential" but here the decency embedded in the words "He who may so wish" has turned it to "desirable". In any case, inducement and stress of the Prophet Sallalahu aleihi wa on this Salat has left no room to doubt that it is desirable. Ahadith which follow lend further support to this contention.

Hadith 1123


Anas radiyallahu anhu reported: I saw the principal (senior) Companions of Messenger of Allah Sallalahu aleihi wa rushing to the pillars (of the Masjid) to perform two Rak`ah prayers behind them before the Maghrib prayer. [Al-Bukhari].


Commentary: "Rushing to the pillars" here refers to the haste which the Companions of the Prophet Sallalahu aleihi wa usually showed in occupying the place near the pillars to perform the two Rak`ah before Maghrib prayer. Thus, this Hadith confirms the practice of the Companions of the Prophet Sallalahu aleihi wa in respect of the two Rak`ah performed before Maghrib prayer.

Hadith 1124


Anas radiyallahu anhu reported: In the lifetime of the Messenger of Allah Sallalahu aleihi wa, we used to perform two Rak`ah (optional prayer) after sunset before the Maghrib prayer. It was asked: "Did Messenger of Allah Sallalahu aleihi wa perform them?'' He radiyallahu anhu replied: "He saw us performing it, but he neither ordered us to perform them nor did he forbid us from doing so.'' [Muslim].


Commentary:
This Hadith mentions the practice of the Companions (Radhi Allahu Anhum) of the Prophet Sallalahu aleihi wa in respect of two Rak`ah performed before Maghrib prayer. They sometimes performed these Rak`ah in the presence of the Prophet Sallalahu aleihi wa. Thus according to the narration of Anas radiyallahu anhu ) their being in practice is proved. But this statement of Anas is according to his own knowledge, otherwise, we have already seen a Hadith in which the Prophet Sallalahu aleihi wa stressed the need to perform them by way of inducement. Thus, it is proved by his speech as
well.

Hadith 1125


Anas bin Malik radiyallahu anhu reported: When we were in Al-Madinah, the moment the Mu'adhdhin finished the Adhan of the Maghrib prayer, the people hastened to the pillars of the Masjid and performed two Rak`ah prayer behind them. A stranger coming into the Masjid would think that the obligatory prayer had already been performed because of the number of people performing them. [Muslim].


Commentary: This Hadith shows that it was usual with the Companions of the Prophet Sallalahu aleihi wa to perform two Rak`ah before Maghrib in the Prophet's Masjid. But in spite of this fact these are Sunnah Ghair Mu'akkadah while the two performed after the Salat are Sunnah Mu'akkadah.
