Answer

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatoh

The Prayers that we offer daily have been categorised into 5 types:

1. Fardh – Compulsory. The person who leaves it out will be Sinful.

2. Wajib – Obligatory (the obligation is a bit less than Fardh). The person who leaves it out will be Sinful.

3. Sunnah Muakkadah – Constant prastice of Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam). The person who leaves it out without any valid excuse will be Sinful.

4. Sunnah Ghair Muakkadah – Practice of Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam). The person who leaves it out will not be Sinful.

5. Nafl – Optional.

Hereunder is the number of rak’ats performed daily at each time of Salaah according to the Hanafi Mazhab:

Fajr Salaah: 4 Rak’ats

  • 2 Sunnah Muakkadah

  • 2 Fardh

Zuhr Salaah: 12 Rak’ats

  • 4 Sunnah Ghair Muakkadah

  • 4 Fardh

Maghrib Salaah: 7 Rak’ats

  • 3 Fardh

  • 2 Sunnah Muakkadah

  • 2 Nafl

 

Esha Salaah: 17 Rak’ats

  • 4 Sunnah Ghair Muakkadah

  • 4 Fardh

  • 2 Sunnah Muakkadah

  • 2 Nafl

  • 3 Wajib (Witr)

  • 2 Nafl

 

Jumu’ah Salaah: 14 Rak’ats

  • 4 Sunnah Muakkadah

  • 2 Fardh

  • 4 Sunnah Muakkadah
