The Ruling on Changing the Place of Prayer for the Sunnah
Question:

Has any proof been reported for changing one's place in order to perform the Sunnah following the obligatory prayer?
Answer:

Yes, it has been reported in the Hadith of Mu'awiyah that he said: The Prophet (sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam) ordered us not to join one prayer with another prayer without leaving or speaking (in between). [1] So the scholars have understood from this that a gap must be made between the obligatory and the Sunnah either by speaking or by changing one's place.

[1] Muslim no. 883 and Abu Dawud no. 1129
