Salah as Nafl

In Islam, a nafl prayer (Arabic: صلاة نفل‎‎, ṣalāt al-nafl) or supererogatory prayer is a type of optional Muslim salah (formal worship). As with sunnah prayer, they are not considered obligatory but are thought to confer extra benefit on the person performing them. An example is the offering of duha prayers. According to the following hadith, nafl not only draws one closer to God but also helps one attain the better success in the afterworld i.e. Paradise:

"Rabi'ah ibn Malik al-Aslami reported that the Prophet said: "Ask [anything]." Rabi'ah said: "I ask of you to be your companion in paradise." The Prophet said: "Or anything else?" Rabi'ah said: "That is it." The Prophet said to him: "Then help me by making many prostrations [i.e. supererogatory prayers]"." (sahih)
