As salamu aleykum, I read in couple of
hadit that we should offer the 2 rakat
Sunnah of Magrib immidiatly after the
Fard prayer, like this hadith Hadhrat
Huzayfah (Radhiyallaahu Anhu) narrates
that Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi
Wasallam) said, ‘Hasten with performing
two Rakaats after Maghrib for they are
lifted up with the Fardh
Salaat.’ (Mishkat pg.105; Kuwait) and
other hadith says ''without any talk''
according to this should we do the
after-salah dhikr and duaa's after the 2
rakat Sunnah of Magrib? Or should we
delay the Sunnah and do it after the
Fard? I heard that Ibn Hajar has said
something about this issue, can you
please mention what he said? Was

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord
of the Worlds. I testify that there is
none worthy of worship except Allah,
and that Muhammad is His slave
and Messenger.

The Prophetic narration which reads
" Hasten to perform the two Rak’ahs of
Sunnah after the Maghrib obligatory
prayer " is reported by Al-Bayhaqi and
others but its chain of narrators
was classified as weak by many
scholars, like Al-Munaawi, As-Sakhaawi,
Al-‘Ajlooni and Al-Albaani This
narration also contradicts the authentic
narrations which prove the dislikeability
of performing the supererogatory
prayer straight after the obligatory
After investigation, we have not come
across any statement of Ibn Hajar
about this precise narration. However,
he stated the legislated mention of Allah
after the obligatory prayer, and said:
“ This is a controversial issue, whether
or not one should busy himself with the
legislated mention of Allah before
performing the supererogatory prayer
and then perform the supererogatory
prayer –and this is the opinion of most
scholars –but the view of the
Hanafi School of jurisprudence, is that
one should start with the
supererogatory prayer.. . ”
However, the authentic narrations
prove that one should first recite the
legislated mention of Allah after the
obligatory prayer, and he should not
abandon this mention just for the above
narration which is proven to be Dha’eef
(inauthentic), and then after reciting the
legislated mention of Allah, he should
perform the Sunnah prayer.

Allah Knows best.
