Can we use second conditional for past  and future both?
example 1:if i won the prize,i would give it to you
example 2:if it rained tomorrow,i would play football
please help me ....

Hi noor us sahar qureshi,
I would suggest that you take a look at our conditionals pages, where these expressions are explained in some detail and where there are some exercises to practice them.
The first example you give is correct, but does not refer to the past or to the future. It refers to an unreal time because the second conditional indicates something that we view as impossible or very unlikely.
The second example you give sounds a bit strange because tomorrow indicates the future, but the second conditional verb forms indicate an unreal time - this combination is confusing. 
I hope this helps you.
Best wishes,
