Question: Assalam alaykum
What is the expiation for praying voluntary prayers during a disliked time?
Answer: Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullah,
There is no expiation (kaffara) required for praying voluntary prayers (nawafil) during the disliked times. Rather, you should repent for the wrong, and give thanks for being guided to what Allah and His messenger (Allah bless him and give him peace) commanded and interdicted.
There are a number of disliked times to pray voluntary prayers, but from amongst the most important are: (1) during sunrise, (2) sunset and (3) midday (right before zuhr), and after having prayed the obligatory (4) fajr and (5) ‘asr prayers. If you find yourself praying at this time, you should break the prayer and make it up later.
