Is it allowed to perform four (4) rakaats Nafl Salaat in Jamaat (congregation) reciting Surah Fatiha once (1) and Surah Ikhlas fifty (50) times in each rakaat? I have seen this practised by some of my Muslim brothers and would like to know if this is valid or innovation.
First of all it is not proper to perform the Nafl Salaah in Jamaah. Furthermore, the practice which you have described is not evident in any tradition or practice of the Prophet (SAW).
And Allah knows best.
