Praying Nafls Sitting

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Qibla.com

Answered by Shaykh Faraz Rabbani

I have just a simple and short question. Is it better ( sunna) to pray the last two nafl of the Isha prayer, while sitting?

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Walaikum assalam,

It is permitted to pray all the sunnas and nafls sitting, without it being disliked, except the sunna of fajr, which it is necessary to stand in if able. However, the reward of such prayers is half that of one who prayer standing, if one is able to pray standing, as our beloved Prophet (Allah bless him & give him peace) explained.

And Allah knows best.
