He wants to offer naafil prayers after praying Zuhr and ‘Asr in ‘Arafah

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Is it permissible, after the pilgrim prays Zuhr and ‘Asr with the imam in ‘Arafaat to offer naafil prayers until sunset?.

Answer:
Praise be to Allaah.

The Messenger (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) did not offer any naafil prayer on the day of ‘Arafaat after praying Zuhr and ‘Asr, which he joined at the time of the earlier prayer in ‘Arafaat. If it were prescribed, he would have been keener to do that than us. All goodness is in following his example and his Sunnah. 

And Allah is the source of strength. May Allaah send blessings and peace upon our Prophet Muhammad and his family and companions. End quote. 

Shaykh ‘Abd al-‘Azeez ibn ‘Abd-Allaah ibn Baaz, Shaykh ‘Abd al-Razzaaq al-‘Afeefi, Shaykh ‘Abd-Allaah ibn Qa’ood 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
