More Reward if You Lengthen the Sunnah of Fajr or Keep them Short?

January 25, 2013 § Leave a comment


Shaikh Uthaimeen, may Allaah have mercy on him said, “Conforming to the Sunnah is better than an abundance of actions: [so] if, for example, someone were to say, ‘I want to lengthen the two Sunnah rak’ahs of the Fajr prayer due to the excellence of that time and to increase [my] actions.’  We would say to him, ‘You are not correct, because the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم used to keep them short.’”

Fataawa fit-Tahaarah was-Salaah, vol. 1, p. 172.
