I am a us convert of 8yrs,and am a hanafi. If anyone can help me on the rules of salat ul awwabin please email me or I’ll check back, many thanks,
According to the soundest opinion, the Salat al-Awwabin (prayer of the oft-repentant) is 6 rakats, prayed after the Maghrib prayer in sets of two. It is best to do this after the 2 confirmed sunna rakats, though it is also valid to consider those 2 rakats from the 6.
