Offering supererogatory prayers after Salaat az-Zhuhr and Salaat al-'Asr
*Please appropriately reference this fatwa to: www.fatwa-online.com, thankyou!*
Question: Is it permissible for the one performing Hajj to perform supererogatory prayers after having offered Salaat az-Zhuhr and Salaat al-'Asr with the imaam on the Day of 'Arafah (9 Dhul-Hijjah) until the time of sunset.?

Response: The Messenger (sal-Allaahu `alayhe wa sallam) did not perform any supererogatory prayers on the Day of 'Arafah after having offered Salaat az-Zhuhr and Salaat al-'Asr combined and at the time of Zhuhr (jam'u taqdeem). And if it was legislated then he would have been more careful about performing them than us, and good and all good is in adhering to following his Sunnah.

And with Allaah lies all success and may Allaah send prayers and salutations upon our Prophet (sal-Allaahu `alayhe wa sallam) and his family and his companions.
