Intention of different nafl salaah when performing one nafl salaah

Q: I came to know by one of the dawat-o-tabligh elders that we can make intention of many different namazes (e.g: if we are praying ishraq then we can make intention of tahiyaatul wudhu, tahiyyatul masjid, salaatul hajat, salaatul taubah, etc.)

1. Is it true?

2. How many total extra niyyats can we make for a two rakat nafil?

3. Can we do the same for zohar, maghrib and isha nafl prayers?


1. Yes.

2. There is no limit.

3. This can be done for nafil salaah. This cannot be done for the fard salaah.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
