Question ID: #4396
Question: Salatul Ishraq on the day of Eid Prayer
Assalamu Alaikum,
By the grace of Allah (SWT), I hope everyone is doing really good and living a healthy life. Alhamdulillah. I have a question regarding Salat Ul Ishraq. It is performed after sunrise. Now, before an EID salah, it is not permitted to perform any nafl salah when your are in the mosque or home. So now I would like to as our Prophet (SA) used to pray Salat Ul Ishraq everyday, is it not permissible to perform Salat ul Ishraq as well before Eid Salah? If it is or if it isn’t, can I get a proper explanation on this with references as well please?
May Allah (SWT) bless us all and forgive our sins.
Jazakallah Khair

الجواب حامداومصليا

It is Makruh to pray any Nawafil (whether in the Musalla or at home) before Eid Salah. However, after Eid Salah the ruling is, if one prays it in the Musalla, Eidgah (a public place where Eid prayer takes place) is Makruh but if one prays it at home then it will be permissible. It is proven from the Sunnah that Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) did not pray any Nawafil before or after Eid Salah in the Musalla.

ولايتنفل قبلهامطلقاالخ وكذالايتنفل بعدهافي مصلاها فانه مكروه عندالعامة وان تنفل بعدهافي البيت جاز الخ

لمافي الكتب السنة عن ابن عباس رضي الله تعالى عنه أنه صلي الله عليه وسلم خرج فصلى بهم العيد لم يصل ولابعدها وهذا لقي بعدهامحمول عليه في المصلى
