The Excellence of Performing two Rak'ah of Voluntary Prayer after Ablution






Hadith 1146


Abu Hurairah radiyallahu anhu reported: The Messenger of Allah Sallalahu aleihi wa said to Bilal radiyallahu anhu    

"Tell me about the most hopeful act (i.e., one which you deem the most rewarding with Allah) you have done since your acceptance of Islam because I heard the sound of the steps of your shoes in front of me in Jannah.''


Bilal radiyallahu anhu   said: "I do not consider any act more hopeful than that whenever I make Wudhu' (or took a bath) in an hour of night or day, I would immediately perform Salat (prayer) for as long as was destined for me to perform.'' [Al-Bukhari and Muslim].


Commentary: The word "Tuhur'' is used for "Wudhu", Ghusl and Tayammum because one gets the ritual purity by all these means and then one can perform Salat freely. It means that every time during the day or night Bilal made Wudhu or Ghusl, he would invariably perform some Nafl prayer. Some of the Ahadith explicitly say two Rak`ah. This act of his so much pleased Allah that he was blessed with the distinction which was witnessed by the Prophet Sallalahu aleihi wa himself. This Hadith proves the merit of performing two Rak`ah prayer after ablution. Some `Ulama' hold that this two Rak`ah prayer as well as Tahiyyatul-Masjid are permissible even in hours when Salat is Makruh (undesirable), while others stick to the injunctions which regard Nafl Salat after Fajr and `Asr prayer undesirable.
