I used pay two rakat after Magrib (we call it NAFILA but I don't know if this it actual name in Arabic). However, yesterday I had the intention not to pray these two rakat if after magrib the restaurant is opened (mostly because after a few minutes the restaurant can be full). I had the intention to let these two rakat for eating. After the prayer is done, the restaurant was not open, so I stayed in the mosque and prayed the two rakats.

My Question is: Will my prayer be accepted??

    @Medi1Saif, the link you gave taught me something new but I do not see a close relation between he's question and mine. I did the prayer but I had intention not to pray. – youssouf Oct 24 '16 at 12:24
  • Well it is not to us to give an answer of something Allah only knows about. Technically your prayer is valid. – Medi1Saif Oct 24 '16 at 12:28
  • Now I want to know if I was wrong in the word Nafila. I am from burkina faso, there, we call these prayers Nafila (2 prayers after Dhuhr, Magrib, 3 after Isha.). I want to know if it is the right word in arabic. – youssouf Oct 24 '16 at 12:30
  • You may call it nafila or sunnah or what ever it is an optional prayer that is what counts. Scholars called nafl prayers like that as-sunan ar-rawatib (sunnah prayers related to some fard prayers) – Medi1Saif Oct 24 '16 at 12:32
