    In the first few ayahs of surah Muzzamil, prophet Muhammad SAW is asked to offer salat at night (tahhajud). This is not a salat that prophet SAW compelled anyone else to pray, but during prophet SAW’s time as well as in the later generations people make this salat as nafil.

    Quran 73:1-8

    Translation by Asad

    O THOU enwrapped one! Keep awake [in prayer] at night, all but a small part of one-half thereof – or make it a little less than that, or add to it [at will]; and [during that time] recite the Qur’an calmly and distinctly, with thy mind attuned to its meaning. Behold, We shall bestow upon thee a weighty message – [and,] verily, the hours of night the mind most strongly and speak with the clearest voice, whereas by day a long chain of doings is thy portion. But [whether by night or by day,] remember thy Sustainer’s name, and devote thyself unto Him with utter devotion.

    Thank you Faisal Haroon.

    The Ayat Ghamidi Sb quoted mentions Tahajjud as additional/nafl salat, not farz. Where does it say it was farz on Rasoolallah?

    Also according to a Sahiih Hadees, Witr for Rasoolallah was referred as non-obligatory. Where is evidence for it to be farz on Rasoolallah?

    The ayahs of surah is making it obligatory on prophet Muhammad SAW. Also in the screenshot of the ayahs you posted above say the same in the bottom note. The hadees screenshot you posted is not saying that it was nafil for prophet Muhammad SAW.
