He told me, when you change into your bedclothes, say three times in your heart without moving your tongue: God is with me, God watches over me, God is my witness … For years I did not cease to practise this, and I experienced a sweetness in my innermost being because of it." - Sahl Al-Tustari

Although not exact answer to your question, the requirements for the acts of prayer are same be it fard or nafl. There is nothing 'light' about the essence of nafl prayers.

Allah knows best

 assalamualaikum

Here is what the ulema say about praying sitting, lyeing etc:

In the obligatory salat, one has to pray standing if he is able. If he is unable, then he is allowed to
pray sitting. He can pray sitting only if he is not able to pray standing. If he is unable to pray sitting, he is allowed to pray lyeing down. If not lyeing down, then by eye movements.

In the salatal tatauwau (nafl and sunnah) one can pray sitting or lyeing down, even if one is able to pray standing.
However one gets 1/2 the reward for praying sitting, and 1/4 for praying lyeing down.

In the case of a person being unable to pray standing, the ulema say that he will get the full reward, and it will not be diminished, because Allah does not hold people to account for something they cannot bear.

This issue is found in many fatawa by our noble ulema,  and as far as I know, there is no difference with the ulema
on it.



And Allah knows. 

 

 

May Allah increase you in knowledge.
Take a look at my site:  http://www.tajwid.info

Also a good site with several mp3 durus of beneficial knowledge from our ulema, fiqh explaining the book "bulgh Maram" , Q&A, http://www.imamfaisal.com
