Benefit: The Permissibility of Joining Between More Than One Intention in a Single Supererogatory Prayer

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

Shaykh ʿAbd al-Raḥmān ibn Nāṣir al-Saʿdī: From the blessings of Allāh [upon us] is that a single action can take the station of multiple actions. [For example] if one enters into the masjid at the time of the rātibah prayer [i.e designated Sunnah prayers before or after the compulsory prayer], and he prays two rakʿahs, with the intention to fulfil the rātibah prayer and also the Sunnah prayer for entering the masjid, he has indeed received their virtues.

Likewise, one is able to comibne the Sunnah prayer for making ablution or even the istikhārah prayer and other than them from the [nawāfil] prayers alongside one’s intentions [to pray the Rātibah and sunnah prayer of entering the masjid].

Translator's note: We understand from this that it is permissible to have more than one intention while carrying out a single Nāfilah prayer (i.e two units of prayer). We learn from this that we can pray two rakʿahs while having the intention of the Sunnah of Ẓuhr, Sunnah of ablution, Sunnah of entering the masjid and even the prayer of istikhārah.
