[Q-ID0045] What is Salatul Awabeen and how do I pray it?

QUESTION:

What is salatul awabeen and how can I pray it?

ANSWER:

Salātul auwabīn encompasses six rak’āts of supererogatory (naf’l) namāz to be performed after namāz e maghrib in three sets of two rak’at each. The Prophet of Allāh صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم has said, “whatsoever the sins are, all (even if they are equal to foam the sea) will be forgiven for who perform six salāt auwabīn after maghrib.”

Allāh knows best.
