In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Assalamu alaikum,

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.

Wassalam,

Faraz Rabbani.
