Praise be to Allah.

Very much yes. Dua's should be made after the completion of obligatory prayers - this is masnoon and is as well considered amongst one of the time of acceptance of supplication.

Other times which are the time of acceptance of supplication (Dua'a) are:

  • Between the Azan and the Iqamah
  • At the time of Tahajjud
  • At the end of the obligatory prayers
  • In prostration
  • At the time of pre-dawn mean (Sehri)
  • During fasting
  • The Night of Power and Destiny (Shab-e-Qadr in Ramazan)
  • After recitation of The Quran
  • Travelling
  • On the day of Arafah (9th Zilhujj)
  • When drinking Zamzam water
  • In the battlefield
  • When it is raining

And Allah knows the best
