Is it permissible, after the pilgrim prays Zuhr and ‘Asr with the imam in ‘Arafaat to offer naafil prayers until sunset?.
The Messenger (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) did not offer any naafil prayer on the day of ‘Arafaat after praying Zuhr and ‘Asr, which he joined at the time of the earlier prayer in ‘Arafaat. If it were prescribed, he would have been keener to do that than us. All goodness is in following his example and his Sunnah.
And Allah is the source of strength. May Allaah send blessings and peace upon our Prophet Muhammad and his family and companions. End quote.
