Dua after Nafl Salah



Scholars have written that it is preferable that one does a good deed before he makes a dua.  Such a dua is more likely to be accepted.  Therefore, it is not only permissible but also commendable that one makes dua after sunnah or nafl prayers.

It is because of this reason ones dua is more likely to be accepted after Tahajjud Salah.

Saaiduna Abu Hurairah Radiallahu Anhu narrates that the Prophet of Allah ṣallallāhu 'alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) said “In the last third of every night Allah subḥānahu wa ta'āla (glorified and exalted be He) descends to the lower most heaven and says: Who is calling Me, so that I may answer him?  Who is asking Me, so that I may grant him?  Who is seeking forgiveness from Me so that I may forgive him!”  (Sahih Bukhari p.153 v.1)
